Reviews and Ratings

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

Red currant, gooseberries and strawberries on the nose. Nice bright acidity. Dry, medium bodied, very pleasant finish. Excellent value.
Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This rosé is made of 100% Négrette.

At Fronton only the Négrette is tolerate in the AOC (appellation).

clear raspberry color with notes of rose flower, cherry, spice and Strawberry.

The wine is fresh, medium-bodied and long.

Excellent to match seafood or take it like aperitif.

Serve it at 10-12 degrees.

Ready to drink.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

The presence of iron and quartz in this poor and gravelly soil brings out characteristics specific to the Négrette grape variety : aromas of violet and berries (black berry, cherry and black currant). A genuine, unique wine, boasting its terroir of origin.

Very balanced rose with outdoorsy, meadow fresh aromas, including wild berries. Try it with cold chicken sandwiches. - Community Wine reviews
