Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Consistently one of the best buys the LCBO gets from Provence. A bit fuller style than some Provence Rose wines - meal worthy. If a very delicate rose is what you seek give this one a pass. Grapefruit and pears were present on the nose and palate. Beautiful lingering finish.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Salmon-pink in colour with aromas of fresh strawberries, Herbes de Provence and peach. Bright acidity with a long strawberry and citrus orange finish. Pair with pork tenderloin.
Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A blend of Grenache and Cinsault grape varieties. Medium bodied wine, fresh and dry with a light salmon colour. Quite refined, especially considering its under $20 price point. Fennel, flowers and tangerine with some sage and apricot notes. Great on its own but even better with the right dish: try a pasta with seafood and cream sauce.
From Côtes de Provence, Carte Noire 2017 is a classic Provence rosé with fuller flavours, beautiful aromatics and a lingering dry style just to remind you it's Provence. Pretty pale rosé gold in the glass look for pink rose peals and soft orange on the nose. Great acidity on this wine made for seafood. Raspberry, light herbs and fresh on the palate. Chill and sip grilled salmon or a charcuterie platter. Love this southern French rose year after year! (Natalie MacLean, nataliemaclean.com, Sept. 29, 2018). - Community Wine Reviews
