We absolutely love vibrant and well-made Provence Rosé.

As you know, we love Rosé in volume in the summer so bright, crisp, and lovely Rosé sold for under $15 are very much in our sights.

Analysis

This vibrant and lovely Rosé is made with a blend of 70% Cinsault and 30% Grenache. This is a classic wine from the Cotes-de-Provence in southeast France. Wine has been made here for at least 2,600 years and while many styles of wines are made here Rosé accounts for more than half of the total production. 90 points out of 100.

How to Enjoy

Serve chilled as an ideal summer aperitif to serve with salads.
