Natalie's Score: 91/100

A pale ballet slipper pink, almost crystalline transparency in the glass. This southern French rosé is made from Grenache Noir and Grenache Gris grapes, thus Gris Blanc (grey-white) are hand-picked in the Roussillon region located in Tautavel between the Mediterranean sea and the Pyrenees mountains. The wine is matured on the fine lees for several weeks before bottling. Lovely mouth-watering acidity for fresh seafood salads. Finishes savoury with dried herbs and garrigue with some light racy cherry on the finish.

Rosé food pairings: seafood salad, chilled prawns with strawberry champagne dressing, seafood ceviche.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

From the spectacular Rousillon region near the Mediterranean in France's SE corner, this is a pale pink beauty of a Rosé, with fresh tree fruit and dried herbs on nose and palate. Extra-dry with mouth-watering acidity. Very refreshing as the temperatures soar.

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous wine! It pours with vibrant pale pink hue showcasing pronounced floral and mineral aromas. It's an out of this world rosé which places a spotlight on the no so well-known French varietals, Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris grapes. Juicy pink grapefruit and underripe strawberry flavours dominate the palate. It's light and crisp with a short refreshing finish. Pair with crab and salmon cakes.

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Bright pink with a copper hue. Delicate yet tight and tart with crisp mouthfeel. Dominant Aromatics of pink grapefruit. A medium long finish with persistence of sweet ripe pink grapefruit, savoury herbs and a hint of cherry blossom. Mouthwatering acidity which would carry a pan fried filet of white fish or a poultry dish with ease. Tasted Feb 2017. Rated 89/100. BespokeTastings.ca
Melissa Pulvermacher reviewed this wine as follows:

This incredibly fresh wine really opened my eyes to how the South of France could produce what we consider a cool climate wine. Produced from black and grey Grenache grown entirely in Roussillon, the acidity in this wine speaks for itself.

The wine is produced from direct and light pressed juice. Floral and fresh with a mid-palate richness in the texture. JP and I agreed on this interesting note of Popeye candy that follows through to the palate. A fun, easy Rosé for the summer patio.
Savoury and elegant, this is one of the very popular French rosés for the summer and for the fall as well as a harvest wine. The colour of a pale pink ballet slipper, this southern-France rosé is made from Grenache Noir and Grenache Gris grapes. The wine is matured on its fine lees for several weeks prior to bottling and has a wonderful minerality, fresh red cherry, dried savoury garrigue herbs and a mouth-watering acidity to match. Just an elegant and well-balanced rosé ready to drink now by itself or with your favourite seafood dish. - Community Wine Reviews
