2016 Paquita Rosé
Germaine “Paquita” Brocard was the daughter of my grandfather’s best friend Louis Julienne. When I was 12 I spent the first of many summer holidays with her family. Since then Germaine became like a second mother, and her sons like brothers. Germaine grew up in Provence, and she painted this view in the style of Cézanne, of the country round Aix. “Paquita” passed away at the age of 96 just two days after the Shiraz grapes were picked for this wine. Merci Maman.
