Cotes du Rhone Rose ‘Carpe Diem’ Domaine l’Ancienne Ecole is a beautifully fresh and clean Rose with mellow soft summer red fruits, wild strawberry, crushed cranberry and raspberry notes. It is made from an equal parts blend of Syrah and Grenache Noir. It is dry, fresh as a daisy and a much cheaper option than overpriced Provence Rose.

We spent a great deal of time searching for a Cotes du Rhone we liked and had almost given up when out of the blue Tarquin met a chap called Bill Thorburn in Edinburgh. It turns out Bill’s son, Wilson, and his wife, Anna, own a little estate called Domaine l’Ancienne Ecole just outside Vinsobres. “I’ll get you samples”, insists Bill. Now caution must be taken here as it’s not uncommon for one of us to meet someone who knows someone who makes wine. It normally ends with a polite email including the words, “they were not right for us” (i.e., they were substandard). Thankfully Wilson and Anna’s wines were tremendous, and they are now firm favourites with our customers. The wines are now certified organic, unfiltered and use very low levels of added sulphur. Their vineyards are in prime sites on the plateau above Vinsobres. Grenache dominated, the wines have excellent structure and above all are a pleasure to drink.
