“Chateau Gassier is one of the oldest continually operating estates in Provence, founded in 1892 by Anthony Gassier, and now, five generations later, managed by Georges Gassier. Over that time, Gassier has become one of the most respected estates in Provence, and one of the most respected Rose houses in all of France. What makes this estate special, beyond the consistency and quality of their winemaking, is that it sits upon some of the most renowned terroir in southern France, Le Grand Site Sainte Victoire. In 2004 Sainte Victoire was one of the first areas in France to be awarded the status of Le Grand Site, recognizing its geological and biological importance to both the past and future of sustainability in France. This award was both a testament to the quality of Gassier’s practices and respect it had shown to the region over the course of the last century, and an opportunity to continue to improve and set the standard for sustainable winemaking across France. Working with the French Government, Chateau Gassier has worked to continually improve and integrate its farming practices into the surrounding natural environment, and the care it has taken with its land has undeniable emerged in the quality of their wines.
Le Du’s has worked with Chateau Gassier in previous years, but this is the first year that we have carried their Grand Vin, “La Pas du Moine.” The grapes for this wine are taken purely from their top vineyards on the southern slope of the Sainte Victoire Mountain Range, expressing an intense mineral palate, with a delicate yet ripe berry and garrigue nose. “
