Château Pradeaux

Le Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2020

Popped and poured at a backyard gathering. Perfect setting for it too! The vines for this wine are technically classified as Bandol. A near 50/50 split of Cinsault and Mourvedre but there’s a little bit of Grenache and Carignan for good measure. The wine pours pretty pink salmon color, with medium viscosity. Medium intensity. On the nose, strawberry, watermelon, purple flowers, and crushed gravel. On the palate, watermelon, strawberry and minerals. Medium acid; low tannin. The finish is long. Perhaps lacking juuuuust a little of its bigger brother’s “oompf” but it’s undeniably good. I would say great value but the Bandol designated wine is just $10 or so dollars more…and that’s a stunner. — 9 days ago

Annika Coteaux de Clair Rose 2019

Light salmon in color. Nose has a rich floral aroma, like peony. Palette is fresh and smooth, finishing with a sharp frontal attack and lingering ripe cranberry throughout. Brilliant Rosé. — 11 days ago

Cristal Brut Rosé Champagne Blend 2009

Sharp crisp with polish. Love the minerality on finish and the smoothness before it. Perhaps a bit young to drink but I wanted to try it. Patience is a virtue but something I lack when excited. — a day ago

Wölffer Estate

Summer in a Bottle Long Island Rosé Blend 2020

From the Zachy’s summer sale, and it’s been a few years since I’ve had this. Sour cherries, slightly butter-y, flowers of some kind? It’s not really grabbing me 🤔 — 6 days ago

Masottina

Brut Rosé Blend 2020

This pink Prosecco smells like red ripe cherries, with more of the same on the palate. Flavors of citrus join in, lime and grapefruit mainly. The bubbles are generous, but fade quickly. They are fun while they last, though. — 13 days ago

Monmousseau

Cuvée J.M. Touraine Brut Rosé Blend

Shockingly good rose bubbles! This is 70/30 Cab Franc/Gamay, and the Cab Franc really shines. Deep rosy copper color with expressive notes of strawberry, peach, rosemary, creme brûlée, and warm bread. Served with a cheese plate and fruit. Drinks way better than it should for $20. — 10 days ago

Château Pigoudet

Signature Rosé

Vintage 2018 | at château Pigoudet oenologist Ivan Khougazian got a free hand to create the dream Provence rosé he always wanted to make, told @Diederick Swagemakers to me. He created this Signature cuvée from Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Very light salmon colour. Spicyness in smell: thyme especially. Powerful yet elegant taste, with that special quality that you can drink it like lemonade. Só dangerous! Thrilling quaffability. Great effort. Paired with carpaccio at Sunday Lunch. And cheeses. | Must buy more, as the wine can age without doubt. — 17 days ago
