Ch. de Saint Martin Eternelle Favorite Rosé Cotes-de-Provence 2015
Varietal Rosé Blend
Retail Price $25
In the Glass
Brilliant, very pale pink color.
The nose is fresh with the scent of spring flowers with a mélange of citrus, red grapefruit, tart cherry, and strawberry.
The palate is in full agreement with the nose delivering a tart and sprite fruit-driven core with loads of bright citrus fruits.
Intensity & Texture
Medium-bodied with perfect balance thanks to a steady thread of fresh acidity.
We absolutely love vibrant and well-made Provence Rosé.
At $25 we were hoping for a bit more generosity of fruit and perhaps more complexity.
This fresh Rosé is made with a blend of: Tibouren, Grenache, and Carignan. The product description claims this be a wine, "made by a woman for women" so perhaps this male reviewer missed some subtle messages here. 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. 87 points out of 100.
How to Enjoy
Serve chilled as an ideal summer aperitif.
