Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2021

Beach me up vibes all day baby. Smells like white peaches and clear skies and seashells. Zings on the tongue and you need that warming zing if like me you are gonna dip into the Pacific (soon I hope anyway I love the sea). The palate is chilled melon, gushing wet stone, and some sort of flower whose name I’ll never remember.
It’s terrible, I can name 7 synonyms for Tempranillo, but when it come to the rest of all botanica I can’t get it together.
Anyway. This finishes a with a hit of grapefruit flavor so from stone fruits to melon to citrus it runs the fruit gamut.
Gushing wet stone is the through-line. I don’t know if it has a dramatic arc but I don’t think it needs it.

Taittinger

Comtes de Champagne Brut Rosé 1996

Tasted blind, from magnum. Bright amber-tinged flamingo color. At first, an oxidative nose. But over the night, this showed notes of orange marmalade, rose water, quince, light honey and some caramel. Lots of energy in the glass still. This powered through the night and a last glass before departing showed this wine has a lot to give. Guessed 76 Dom Rose. — 10 days ago

Methode Champenoise w/proper grapes grown near Lake Garda. This might be past it’s prime, but it was still formidable & delicious: full bodied, quite dry w/delicate strawberry & seashells, oxidized nuttiness… nice heft, body & acidity thru finish. Solid sipper w/sentimentality — 2 days ago

Les Vignerons de Grimaud

Fleur de Provence Rosé Blend 2020

Les Vignerons de Grimaud ‘Fleur de Provence’ Rosé 2020: Light-bodied. Medium acidity. Bright red fruit & citrus flavors. Dry finish. A refreshing blend of 60% Grenache & 40% Cinsault resulting in a non-complex but extremely enjoyable wine. What better way to enjoy the hot desert weather but with some pool time & Côtes de Provence rosé wine! Creating second generation friendships & memories. Cheers 🍷 — 21 days ago

Domaine Rolet

Crémant du Jura Rosé Blend

NV; Mother's Day 2022.

Raiding the wine cooler at my parent's house. Many bottles we've gifted them over the years sit patiently, as they barely drink wine anymore... 🤷🏻‍♂️

A little tired, but still showing good fruit, no idea how long this has been waiting for today... Maybe 10Y? Tartrates on the bottom of the cork...

Metodo Classico Millesimato Extra Brut Rose 2018

2018; Sparkling Nebbiolo (Spanna). The new vintage landed in our cellar quite some time ago, just getting around to tasting this evening.

What a fantastic color, nothing else like this in Italy.

See notes from my numerous posts on prior vintages, mostly consistent but strawberry notes are quite prominent on the palate for this vintage. Just lovely. 92-93

Interesting. I don’t see too many Sparkling Reds outside of Australia.

@Bob McDonald Not red like sparkling Shiraz, but good copper/salmon color, a bit darker than prior vintages though

Ok. Thanks for the clarification. More like a sparkling Rose it seems.
