Drawn from one of the Provence’s most celebrated terroirs, AIX is created to be the purest possible expression of what a rosé wine can be. Made for those who know how to appreciate wine. And for those who know how to appreciate life.
‘’We’ve never encountered a harvest as early as this one,” says Eric Kurver, winemaker at Maison Saint Aix. ‘’Harvest used to start at the end of September: this year we began on the third! The changing climate, along with this year’s growing conditions, lead to the grapes’ early maturation. They were fully ripe, with a good acidity and an excellent balance between fruitiness and freshness. In my experience, this is one of the best AIX vintages ever.’’
High up in the hills just north of Aix-en-Provence, away from the heat of the coast, you’ll find a set of ancient stone gates. Beyond them lies the Maison Saint Aix estate. Here, we dedicate ourselves to capturing the essence of this iconic terroir in a single premium rosé.
Made for those who know how to appreciate wine. And for those who know how to appreciate life.
With mineral-rich soils, 300 days of sunshine a year and the cooling Mistral winds, Provence provides the ideal growing conditions for Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault grapes, the classic blend used to make AIX Rosé. Maison Saint Aix is one of the largest domains in the AOP Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence appellation. At 420 meters above sea level, it is also one of the highest. And at that height we enjoy cooler nights and a greater Mistral effect, where the vines are restored on dewy mornings, which only benefits the fruit.
The 50-60 year old Grenache vines of the domain ensure a wine of the highest quality, while the fruit from the younger vines provides freshness. To maintain harmony, 4 hectares are replaced every year by new vines.
Rosé makes every occasion feel effortless. From intimate moments together, to an elegant gift, to celebrating the biggest moments of our lives, AIX distinctive bottles come in every size you can imagine – from the regular 75cl bottle all the way to a 15L Nebuchadnezzar. AIX is made to be shared.
