Palette Grand Cru de Provence Rosé Grenache Blend 2015

First time drinking a Simone rosè and hard to wrap my head around it considering it drinks like a red. Spicy red berries, some bitterness and bountiful acidity. Needs food, even meat I was I paired it with BBQ ribs which worked well. Not a quaffer for a hot August day! — 9 days ago

Grand Ferrage Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2018

Melon & strawberry notes. Fruit is definitely in front of the acidity here. Enough power to hold up to some rich food. Very nice. — 6 days ago

Grand Cru de Provence Rosé Rhone Blend 2017

Second bottle of this I've had. First must have been off, because this is really good. Pretty and muscular at the same time. Minerally, taut stone fruit, barely ripe strawberry. Stood up well to smoked and seared rack of lamb with Harissa, Castelvetrano olive and roasted garlic tapenade. — 17 days ago

Château Simone

Palette White Rhone Blend 2012

This was one of the more interesting white (or red) wines I have had in a while. Layers of flavor, some lanolin, and gets better as it reaches room temp. Worth the hype I’ve read. — 13 days ago

Château Miraval

Pink Floyd Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend

Continues to be consistently excellent. Strawberries, stone fruit, Rose petal, crushed gravel. Dry, pale pink, exquisite. Brad and Angie should be proud. — 4 days ago

Domaine de la Malherbe

Rouge Syrah Blend

Fantastic Grenache/Cinsault/Syrah blend from the South of France in Provence. Despite all the great Rosé and Rolle here it is nice to have some good reds available as well. This one comes from 80 yr. old vines and the violet and lavender comes through from the Grenache. Nice long finish of raspberry and white pepper. Beautiful property to enjoy near the beach and the fort de Bregançon. Santé! — 9 days ago

Domaine Saint Andrieu

Côtes de Provence Rolle 2016

White flowers and a mineral thing on the nose. The palate is a bit fruity with pear and melon and citrus (which was not on the nose), a very good grip and a soft, delicate touch on the sides. Quick finish with some melon and a nice freshness. Very good white. 100% Rolle

@Delectable Wine this is the white

Domaine de Trévallon

Vin de Pays des Bouches-du-Rhône White Rhone Blend 2016

Seth Morgen Long

Lighter, lean, angular, mineral. Missing some of the density and was a bit muted. Maybe a touch of volatility hiding in sulfur. Enjoyable nonetheless. Maybe this is just young and tight, but as I drink more 2016’s it seems as though it was a tough year for many top domaines. — 11 days ago

La Bastide Blanche

Bandol Mourvèdre Blend Rosé 2018

The 2018 Domaine de la Bastide Blanche Rosé is absolutely stunning. Composed of predominately Mourvèdre, with the remaining Grenache and Cinsault, this begins with gorgeous aromas of fresh white peaches, strawberries, lemon zest, orange blossoms, crushed stones and a light dusting of dried herbs that all come together beautifully. On the palate this is bright, vivid and beautifully textured, with remarkable overall precision and balance all the way through the mouth watering finish. This Rosé has it all, and it will be extremely difficult to come across a more compelling Rosé in this price range. — 13 days ago
