Light and bright. Everything I want in a rose. Cleansing acidity, ripe stone fruits, underripe strawberry bramble. A touch of effervescence. My case buy yearly, and can’t beat it for the price.

Very happy to find this wine at Cardiff SSM. This is the 16 vintage - same rating as the 15. Great minerals and crispness. My favorite rose.

The #tourdefrance 2017 Stage 19 rolls out of the hills into Provence. This crisp rosé really captures the smells of the place. Floral and fresh.

Fruity nose, dry, nice minerality, perfect for a warm day.

This Rose is one of the years best and perfect after a long sunny day. Tried this at Toast and had to track it down. Bright ripe strawberries And Rose petals on the nose. A nice touch of wet gravel as well. Mouth feel is crisp, great acidity, almost perfect. Cherries and strawberries with a bit of lavender and spice on the finish. A long lasting taste of chocolate covered cherries finishes it off.

Love this rose. Great reflection of Provence. The guy that sold it to me said, "smells like peaches, tastes like sunshine."

Sort of a shoe box thing happening with the nose. Some flower notes. Nice acid, rose and delicate strawberry.

Awesome. Great palate feel and texture. Round, creamy almost, with a mineral backbone. Peach, cherry blossoms, crushed rock and lime zest.

Nice rose, but a bit more tropical and ripe than previous vintages. Was my go-to rose, but not this year. This usually has ripping acidity, but left me wanting more freshness.
