Miami, known for its vibrant culture and luxurious experiences, became the perfect backdrop for an extraordinary event celebrating the launch of Château La Gordonne’s highly anticipated trilogy of wines: Le Cirque des Grives, Sémaphore, and Les Planètes. Hosted at the renowned Faena Miami Beach, the event promised an afternoon of indulgence and discovery as guests gathered to experience the latest creations from the esteemed Vranken Pommery portfolio.

Château La Gordonne has long been revered for its commitment to crafting exceptional rosé wines in the sun-kissed vineyards of Provence, France. With a history dating back to 1652, the winery’s dedication to sustainable viticulture and organic practices underscores its desire to preserve the environment while imbuing its wines with character and distinction.

Guiding us through this sensory journey was none other than Julien Fort, Château La Gordonne’s esteemed Cellar Master. His rare visit to Miami brought with it an air of excitement as attendees eagerly anticipated the tastings of the latest vintage from the winery’s esteemed collection.

The centerpiece of the afternoon was the debut of the rosé, white and red wine from Château La Gordonne: Le Cirque des Grives, Sémaphore, and Les Planètes. Each wine represented a unique expression of the Golden Triangle, where the distinct terroirs of Puget-Ville, Pierrefeu-du-Var, and Cuers converge to create a mosaic of flavors and aromas.

Le Cirque des Grives, the first in the trilogy, captivated with its freshness, finesse, and complexity. Sourced from the sun-drenched slopes of the “Cirque des Grives” terroir, this rosé embodied the essence of Provence’s vibrant landscape, offering fruity aromas and a smooth finish that danced on the palate.

Sémaphore, a tribute to the white terroirs of Château La Gordonne, showcased the elegance of the Rolle grape variety. Crafted from vines over 80 years old, this wine exuded tradition, history, and modernity, offering a pure expression of Provence’s winemaking heritage.

The innovative spirit of Château La Gordonne was epitomized in Les Planètes, a cuvée that pushed the boundaries of winemaking. Utilizing a new method of extraction through infusion in historic containers, this wine was a testament to the winery’s commitment to innovation. Hand-selected berries vinified in sandstone eggs resulted in a silky, elegant wine that delighted the senses.

At Faena Los Fuegos in Miami Beach, a culinary journey unfolded alongside the unveiling of Château La Gordonne’s trilogy of wines. The prime Angus skirt steak, Mediterranean branzino, and roasted cauliflower were meticulously paired with each wine—Le Cirque des Grives, Sémaphore, and Les Planètes, respectively. As glasses clinked and plates emptied, it was clear that Faena’s dishes elevated the tasting experience to new heights, showcasing the perfect harmony between food and wine.

The launch of Château La Gordonne’s trilogy of wines was not just an event; it was an invitation to embark on a journey through the terroirs of Provence, guided by the expertise and passion of Julien Fort and the Château La Gordonne team. In the heart of Miami, amid the opulence of Faena, guests savored not only the wines but also the stories and traditions woven into each bottle—a true celebration of the artistry and craftsmanship of one of France’s most esteemed wineries.
