Nose has mashed red table grapes, washed raspberry and crushed granite.

Palate has cherry skin, first Summer strawberry picked, limestone pebbles, Spring violets and wet beach sand.

One of the most expressive rosés from Provence I can really recall ever tasting. Generally we expect drier styled wines. We bought these last year, and my preference is buy and hold most rosé, one year minimum. What a year has done with this wine since we initially tasted! $10 WTH, really? GD, I don't have enough!

Melon & river rocks throughout with just a tinge of honeysuckle on the finish. While not bland it is worth noting that all of these flavors are quite subtle. Paired with one of the last warm days of the year! [10/13/20]

Certainly qualifies as a rose, but there's an off-putting, funky bitterness that I don't love. Still, it's quaffable.

The nose has bright red cherry and strawberry notes. The palate has bright red cherry and limestone notes. Great with seared pork chops.

Crisp, clean, dry rosé with lots of flavour, typical of Provence, with a hint of lavender.

Light and bright rose, a little sweetness to my palate, but not overbearing. Strawberries and lavender
