In 1992, my father, Philippe Bieler, founded Chateau Routas in Coteaux Varois – a small appellation in the middle of Provence. The winery focused on grenache based red blends and rosé. My sister Mira and I !got involved in the mid 90's when we developed, through unorthodox winemaking and creative marketing and selling, one of the more dynamic rosé brands in America at the time. In 2005 there was a great opportunity to sell the winery and estate and we took it. We founded Bieler Pere et Fils that same year we sold Routas and focus 100% on making rosé!
An overnight success in just 15 years! I'm so proud of how far the dry rosé category has developed over the last handful of years but some of us have been banging away at it for a decade plus. Dry rosé not only remains one of the fastest growing wine categories in the US wine market but has even accelerated further this past year and Provence, France remains the standard for what consumers are buying and drinking. If you can find a better bottle of rosé out there for less than the Bieler Père et Fils then I recommend you buy it!
Pale brilliant orange. Bright, energetic and focused on the nose, displaying fresh red berry, orange zest and honeysuckle aromas and a touch of rhubarb. Juicy raspberry and cherry flavors show good depth and breadth, and a core of tangy acidity adds back-end cut. Silky and perfumed on the finish, which leaves behind a refreshingly bitter cherry pit note. This lively, incisive pink wine wears its 13 percent alcohol with real aplomb.
In 2016, the fruit naturally found a beautiful balance between red fruit and the acid structure without either overpowering each other, or the savory, citrus and mineral core.
The classic Provence Rose profile is what every serious winemaker around the world attempts to mimic and for good reason. Our goal is always to find the delicate balance between floral, herbal, wild red fruit (not overly ripe) and acid.
The blend is the following: Grenache 52%, Syrah 23%, Cabernet Sauvignon 14%, Cinsault 8%, Rolle 3%. - ALC BY VOL 13%, PH 3.2, RS .2%.
