Analysis

This fresh Rosé is made with a traditional style blend of Cinsault, Syrah, and 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. Les Jolies Filles translates to "pretty girls" but its charm and value know no gender boundaries. 91 points out of 100.

How to Enjoy

Serve chilled as an ideal summer aperitif or pair with grilled and smoked fish.
