For Eric Kurver, the release of Aix Rosé 2023 ushers in a season that reflects Provence as much as making memories.

Time stands still in Provence. Or at least that’s what locals like Eric Kurver say. As the owner and winemaker at Maison Saint Aix, he believes the region’s vibe comes from 300 days of sunshine leading to connections with nature and each other. Conviviality and shared moments follow.

“During the day, the ambiance of beautiful squares with fountains and tree-lined streets sets a tranquil backdrop, while evenings bring the city alive with the lively energy of bustling wine bars, students, squares full of restaurants and street music,” says Kurver, whose AIX Rosé 2023 release signals summer’s opening volley.

Rosé, unlike any other wine, matches a seasonal mindset. “We sometimes say rosé is the only wine you don’t talk about but simply enjoy,” says Kurver. For the latest release from the brand, look for balance and complexity, making the wine easy to pair with summer dishes like salmon, oysters, lobster, light salads, tapas and Asian cuisine.

“AIX Rosé 2023 boasts a fresh, aromatic nose filled with white stone fruit, citrus and wild berries,” says Kurver. “The vintage enhances its mouthfeel, extending its length while maintaining its bright and crisp character, resulting in a memorable finish.”

I ask Kurver what summer tableaus he imagines for himself in the days ahead. “Long lunches that seamlessly transition into dinners,” he says, adding, “rounds of pétanque under the Provençal sun, evenings spent savoring dinner and drinks in charming Aix-en-Provence, and even exploring the stunning Côte d’Azur.”

All right, maybe time doesn’t stand still in Provence. Instead, it does a slow fade that mimics pink and orange sunsets. No matter. I’ll have what Kurver’s having.
