Rosé:

A Booming Market

The consumption of Rosé around the world has been steadily increasing since 2003. In 2016, it hit 2.4 billion liters an increase of 32% since 2002, according to FranceAgriMer summary report Observatoire économique mondial des vins rosés, a data report published in February 2018.

As the top producer and consumer of Rosé, France leads the market. Over the past 25 years, the consumption of Rosé wine has tripled.
Today, one in three bottles of wine purchased is a Rosé, according to the CIVP (Conseil Interprofessionnel des Vins de Provence) data as reported by IRI Symphony. In addition, nine out of ten wine drinkers say they drink Rosé regularly? Exports of Provence wines have skyrocketed by 500% in the arc of 15 years.


This craze for Rosé wine now extends way beyond the borders of France. The U.S. ranks second in worldwide consumption and buys 43% of the total production sold abroad.

Rosé wines—especially from Provence, from where 40 million bottles were exported in 2016—are experiencing unprecedented sales growth in the U.S. and around the globe.

An Innovation

Rosé has become a favorite among dedicated wine drinkers and newbie’s alike because of the wide range of premium wines and packaging that are on the market today. Rosé wines show their best when simply packaged in a way that allows buyers to see their subtle range of colors. The bottles themselves are becoming collectibles and are a way for winemakers to stand out.

Bottles That Break the Mold

Given that Rosé wines have generally had a less traditional flavor profiles compared to red or white wines, there is often more freedom for producers when it comes to choosing packaging. 

In 2006, the Sainte-Lucie estate opted for a bottle that was a complete break from the norm for its “Made in Provence” Cuvée: a cylindrical bottle with a flat top that slants down. It has been a huge success and the estate continues to use the specific KENDO Wine bottle for all of its other wines.
 

Extra-White Flint to Showcase Provence Wines

In Provence, Rosé has long been a special category. Provence's climate, terroir and grape varietals are all perfect for this wine, so it is not surprising that it is the No. 1 French region for the production of Rosé.

In 2016, 156 million AOC (appellation d'origine contrôlée) bottles were sold, accounting for 42% of total production nationwide (in France) and 6% of total production around the world.

To meet the needs of this market, Saverglass produces a premium extra-white flint glass, bottle which emphasizes the true colors of Rosé wines.

The leading brand in Provence, Domaines Ott chose an exclusive and unique bottle that is immediately recognizable. The bottle’s sweeping curves were inspired by undulating landscapes that dot this iconic estate. It also offers a discreet nod to the elegant amphorae once used to store wine. Domaines Ott’s Cuvée—enhanced by Saverglass’ extra-white flint bottle—is a very pale pink rose hue that reflects golden, orange and sometimes even vermilion tones in the wine.

The Center for Research and Experimentation on Rosé Wine also chose Saverglass’ extra-white flint glass for its research. Rosé wines are known for their range of colors. The main ones –peach, melon, mango, grapefruit, mandarin and red currant in order of consumer preference—are recorded in this report, which can be used to keep track the exact color of a Rosé, thanks to the extra white flint bottle.

Château de Berne, in Provence, is another one of the region’s innovators. As early as 2008, it went against the current of traditional wine design by choosing a square bottle for its Terre de Berne Cuvée. Today, Château de Berne sells four million bottles of it a year, in markets that range from Australia to the United States and even as far afield as Kazakhstan.

Innovation in Glass

Saverglass has expanded its catalog with a variety of innovative product lines to help producers continue to create high-end, elegantly packaged Rosés. The company has also redesigned the punt of white flint glass bottles so that the light concentrated at the base radiates throughout the bottle to showcase the pale color of the wine.
 

Saverglass offers several ranges of rosé bottles : 

- The Eclat Collection

Currently has six models and each year new sizes, up to 3-liter formats, are added to meet the growing demands of winemakers.

- The Constellation Model

Languedoc native and former rugby player Gérard Bertrand chose this model for his Hédo brand, which has a punt that looks like a golf ball. "We wanted to create a super premium Cuvée that includes rosé's strongest varietals: Grenache and Mourvèdre. It's the Mourvèdre that gives the wine its coral color. The best way to enhance it was to go for a punt with indentations," explains Bertrand, who is an old hand at innovative packaging. Bertrand and Jon Bon Jovi, of rock band Bon Jovi fame, joined forces to create Hampton Water, a rosé wine packaged in the BORDELAISE ECLAT CONSTELLATION bottle.

Saverglass designs innovative and sought-after shapes for consumers who crave sophisticated packaging. The Irrésistible, Pompadour Wine, Invent, Antik, Massalia, Théos, Feng Wine, Sophia Wine and Essencia Wine designs are just a few examples that showcase the style of innovative Rosé packaging.

Premiumization

Premium offerings of Rosé go hand-in-hand with refined bottles that:

  • Have an appealing shape that attracts attention.
  • Make use of creative decorating techniques instead of simply just labels.
  • Are personalized through embossing on the finish, body and base.

The Château Puech-Haut, in the Languedoc Roussillon, used the Saverglass DUO bottle for its Puech-Haut Prestige Cuvée. This flat-sided, frosted bottle is new to the world of wine and is reminiscent of a perfume bottle. Its design is minimalistic with just two elements screen-printed on the bottle: the coat of arms with the ram’s heads and the brand name.

Rosé Wine Hits the Michelin-Star Restaurants

Long regarded as the poor cousin of French gastronomy, Rosé wines have gradually found their way into high-end restaurants. Many of France’s larger estates now want to showcase the intense color of these wines by offering more-structured versions, some of which are likely to be age-worthy.

Gérard Bertrand's Clos du Temple is a great example of this trend. Seven years after the release of Clos d'Ora, Bertrand created the Clos du Temple. The eight-hectare vineyard is located in the Cabrières Valley in the heart of Languedoc, in the South of France. The wine was created to be age-worthy enough to be paired with a number of refined dishes and was created to be comparable to reds and whites among the Grand Crus wines.

The bottle has a highly intricate design and a square base symbolizing the entrance to a temple.

"I wanted this wine to transport people to a divine place and that is why this Rosé is reminiscent of a temple. The Clos du Temple is therefore a wine that is transcendent in some form. This wine is really the pinnacle for me, as it incorporates both the terroir and my winemaking philosophy" says Bertrand.
