WINE OF THE MONTH CLUB SELECTION
“ roh • ZAY “
Casa Rossa is a small Corsican winery
exclusively distributed by the impressive
Vins BrébanChâteau in Provence, France.
It was founded in 1952 by Raymond
Bréban and is now run by the third
generation Bréban.
Very early on, the family realized the
importance of caring for the land. This
extended to how they grew their grapes
as well as size of their carbon footprint
- even before “carbon footprint” was a
term. Chemicals are kept to an absolute
minimum, and they recycle everything
possible.
Besides being environmentally conscious
and totally committed to quality, they
also recognize great opportunities. One
of these opportunities was fashioning a
great sparkling wine in Provence – which
was so good, in fact, they could actually
compete with Champagne! Mon dieu!
That used to sound like heresy, except
that now they are the largest and most
successful producers of sparkling wine in
Provence.
But their roots (literally) and their
heritage rests with the great Rosés that
are legendary here. Of course, that leads
to incredible Rosé sparkling wine as well.
Corsica is a tiny island off the French
coast that is famous for its small but
impressive wine industry. It also has a
Rosé reputation.
Our selection is 75% Nielluccio and 25%
Grenache. It exhibits all the greatness
of Provence Rosés, but with a bit more
presence and power. It is distinguished
by its impressive, lemon-scented finish.
