RATINGS

95Vinous / IWC

...array of red berry, citrus fruit and floral qualities, along with hints of ginger, sea salt, orange pith and toasted almond. Stains the palate with vibrant, mineral-laced strawberry, blood orange, salted nut and candied rose flavors that are firmed by a spine of juicy acidity. Shows superb depth as well as energy and finishes extremely long and focused, with repeating florality and a sappy red berry quality.

93The Wine Advocate

It's a lovely salmon hue in the glass, redolent of vanilla and cedar and backed by scents of clementines and cloves. Medium to full-bodied, it's a rich, plushly textured rosé that might even benefit from another year of bottle age, although there's no denying the current appeal of a lingering finish that calls creamsicles to mind.

REGION

France, Provence, Cotes de Provence

Provence is the region on the Mediterranean coast of southeastern France known for sun-drenched Lavender fields and an easy-going, gracious attitude toward life. Until the last few decades it was also known for producing large quantities of unremarkable rosé, often sold in bulk. Today its most famous wines are still rosés, but their quality has improved dramatically. Notable red wines are also being made in Provence, particularly in Bandol, a tiny appellation east of Marseille. The largest appellation is Côtes de Provence. Other appellations include Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence, Côtes du Luberon, Cassis, Bellet, Palette and Les Baux de Provence. Red and white wines are made throughout the region, despite the attention paid to rosé. Red wine grapes grown in Provence are Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and some Cabernet Sauvignon. White wine grapes are Clairette, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Bourboulenc and Ugni Blanc.
