ROSÉ 2023 

AOP Côtes de Provence – Made with organic grapes

Technical sheet Bertrand LAVIER vintage

On the occasion of the exceptional exhibition “En Couleur” by Bertrand Lavier at the Commanderie de Peyrassol (April 1st to November 3th, 2024), the artist, a friend of Philippe Austruy and familiar with the place, created his own rosé. A festive, joyful wine that extends the beautiful days even into November, under the rain, in Paris… The bottle elegantly displays an original artwork that evokes the old shop windows that were whitewashed with “blanc d’Espagne”.

A collector’s item as well as a tasting item, the Lavier 2023 cuvée leaves no one indifferent.

The 2023 vintage

The winter of 2022-2023 was particularly dry in Provence. The arrival of spring did not change the climatic conditions and the early drought that followed became particularly worrying. That was without counting on a complete turnaround in the situation during the months of May and June. Regular and abundant rainfall profoundly modified the profile of the vintage.

Fortunately, from June onwards, a particularly hot and dry summer appeared. Under a radiant sun, the vine, which benefited from a good water reserve, developed in excellent conditions. From mid-August, when we walked through our vineyards, we noticed looser bunches, very concentrated grapes, thicker skins, perfect indicators of great vintages. The first maturity checks suggested a harvest with great potential, combining good acidity and still moderate sugar levels.

However, the end of the summer had a new surprise in store for us with a fortnight of almost scorching temperatures. Maturity then went crazy. Very quickly, the potential alcohol levels soared, the color and aromas appeared. It was necessary to accelerate the harvest programs to preserve and benefit from the beautiful acidity present on August 15th. In the later sectors, from the second half of September, cooler nights facilitated pre-fermentation operations. The harvest took place in record time with all the grapes in the cellar by the beginning of October.


Clays and limestones of the inner valleys, associated with some plots of fresh and deep terroirs.
Freshness maintained by the choice of plots with a northern exposure.

Grape varieties

20% Grenache – 60% Cinsault – 15% Tibouren – 5% Syrah


Harvest guided by precise plot choices based on the evolution of maturity controls. Traditional vinification in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature after delicate pneumatic pressing.


A few months in stainless steel tanks on fine lees allow the aromatic freshness to be respected as much as possible.

Tasting notes

Very pale pink color. The first sip fills the palate, evolving towards subtle notes of peach and white flowers. A tangy note adding freshness and crunch on a persistent finish.
