Natalie's Score: 91/100

So pretty and lightly floral: terrific value. Racy acidity. This glorious French rose is great for grilled veggies. This lovely rose smells like summer: warm grass and redolent field flowers. Fleeting notes of wild berries haunt this dry rose. Love the salmon pink hue on this wine. Perfect for pasta in cream sauce or fresh salads. A crisp finish, infused with raspberry tang and beachside memories. Love the curvy bottle.

Rosé food pairings: curried pork, sweet and sour pork, pork croquettes.

Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A classic Provence Rose with fuller flavours, beautiful aromatics and a lingering dry style just to remind you it's Provence. A good price and a beautiful bottle too.
Lise Charest Gagne rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale rose gold in the glass. Aromas of roses, red pastille and tangerines. Fresh acidity hits you first then red grapefruit, flowers and more red pastille (raspberry) on the pleasant dry finish. It's alive and fresh! I enjoyed it as it opened up, the red fruit became more prevalent! Pair with rich grilled scallops. No need for rose coloured glasses on this one!
Carte Noire (2016) is a rosé from the Côtes De Provence wine region and a perfect pairing to grilled asparagus, baby corn and romaine hearts. This lovely wine smells like summer: warm grass, redolent field flowers and wild red berries. This Provencal rosé is a blend of Grenache and Cinsault grapes wine grapes. - Community Wine Reviews
