TASTING NOTE: This superb rosé strikes a remarkable balance between being impressive, concentrated and complex and maintaining a refined, lifted soul. Undeniably Provençal, this is aromatic and floral with melon, cherry, candied fruit, meadow and garrigue notes aplenty. The palate is long and complex with great replays, crisp food friendly acidity and a fine mineral undertone. A gorgeous weight and mouthfeel with a delectable hint of spice on the finish. Wow, what a wine, and ideal for pairing with anything you wish to serve. (Vintages panel, June 2018) Price $ 39.95
