Analysis

There is a richness of fruit that as atypical for Provence Rosé no doubt provided by the Syrah. This lovely and pleasing Rosé is made with a blend of 45% Grenache, 40% Cinsault, and 15% Syrah. 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 or pair with smoked fish or olives.
