Domaine de Valdition Oratoire Rose 2018Domaine de Valdition
An elegant blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache Noir, Mourvèdre, and Pinot Noir. Nestled between Montpellier and Marseille in plein Provence, Domaine de Valdition excels at rosé. It is their mainstay, and our challenge was to select from too many choices. Our result was to select – one good, one better, and one BEST, – and without question Oratoire is their best. Silky and elegant, this wine is dominated by aromas of white fruits and spices and cut grass. This is a pleasure to drink on a sunny day – (obligatory) and feel like you are basking in the South of France.

Domaine de Valdition sits on 240 hectares in Provence, in the heart of the Alpilles, between Orgon and Eygalières and near Saint-Rémy de Provence.
It was during the Renaissance that Francis I, King of France, donated this estate to his daughter Caroline of the Provost. She married the Sieur Dacla de Chateaubert whose family kept the estate for 4 centuries.
The low yields obtained on this unique terroir and the great diversity of grape varieties grown on the estate results in creative wines of the highest quality. Respect and love for the land have driven the Valdition team to become ever more involved in an environmental approach by moving to biodynamic farming in recent years. The wines of Valdition are the culmination of constant work with the sole objective of producing the highest quality wines from their unique terrior.
The wine shop at Valdition is a MUST stop for any traveler. Bring an extra large suitcase – there are so many gifts and crafts to admire. For a private visit, contact them here.
