‘…plenty of weight to match its colorful character. The raspberry fruit and bright acidity all go well together in this ripe, harmonious wine.’90/100 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Best Buys 2018
From an estate consistently applauded for its rosés, this is a simply delicious example of the Provençal style. Its inviting strawberry aromas are laced with suggestions of bergamot and roses, and the full, poised texture in the mouth is packed with ripe redcurrant fruit and fresh acidity.
There is more than enough substance in this lovely rosé to make it a match for all kinds of meals—its juicy energy and racy finish would perfectly suit a salade niçoise but could step up with aplomb to the rich intensity of a ratatouille or even simply treated game.
‘…floral aromas mixed with bright strawberry fruits, more strawberry on the palate, a pleasing texture with a bit of heft, with a citrus tinged finish.’
