We adore rosé all year round, but for many drinkers pink wines are the nectar of choice throughout Spring/Summer. We’re smack bang in the middle of rosé season, so we thought we’d take you to Provence, the centre of the rosé universe!
Le Saint Andre Rosé 2016
"Pale brilliant orange. Nervy and focused on the nose, displaying vibrant citrus pith, red berry and mineral scents and a hint of white pepper. Tangy and light on its feet, offering bitter red currant and orange zest flavors and a touch of herbacity. In a racy, sharply focused style, delivering firm closing bite and citrusy persistence." Josh Raynolds, Vinous
Chateau La Gordonne Rosé 2016
Giving up plenty of wild strawberry, wild herbs and herbes de Provence-styled aromas and flavours, the Cotes de Provence Rose is medium-bodied, nicely balanced and refreshing, with enough texture to handle the dinner table, and enough freshness to stand on its own.
Chateau Riotor Rosé 2016
It has a pale salmon pink colour, intensely perfumed berry and Provence herb aromas. Fresh and intensely flavoured delicate red berries on the palate with a crisp, dry and refreshing finish. One taste and you will understand why Provence rose (and Riotor especially) is so popular!
Domaine Trois Mômes Coteaux Varois en Provence 2016
The Coteaux Varois in Provence of the Domaine Trois Mômes presents a light and brilliant pale pink color, which releases precise and fine fruit aromas. A fresh rosé in the mouth and very expressive.
Rimauresq Petit Rose 2016
Rimauresq takes its name from the ”Real Mauresque” which is the river which flows through the vineyards. Its exceptional ‘terroir’, recognised through its Cru Classé status, results in wines of elegance, complexity, purity and long term cellaring potential. The terroir is of crystalline rock with sand and gravelly soil. It benefits from the combination of the individual terroirs in the same area of the vineyard.
Les Vins Bréban Mado en Provence Rosé 2016
''This wine is the top of the range for this producer. It is soft and ripe to start but deliciously balanced and crisp at the end. Named after Madeleine or Mado, an imaginary Provencal lady.'' Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
