Natalie's Score: 91/100

This lively French rosé not only offers wild strawberry notes, it also has a little white pepper for intrigue and pleasure. Medium-bodied, dry and some kind of wonderful from Régine Sumeire, Propreitor-récolt. One of the most respected rosé producers in Provence: consistently great year after year.

Rosé food pairings: pan-fired pickerel, gravel, steamed shrimp with lemon butter.

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Rose gold colour, with a copper hue, bright and crisp. Dry with a medium finish with persistence of field berry, crisp slightly underripe peach, blood orange. Pairs well with Kung Pao chicken or sushi. Tasted the 2016 vintage in March 2018. 90 points
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale salmon colour with a bouquet showing strawberry, rhubarb, light peach and a touch of sultana raisin. 100% organic rose, tri-blend Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. High acidity, medium minus body and finish. Delightfully, crisp, dry and delicious. Pair with light summer salad, fish or lightly grilled chicken. 89 points
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

Moderate floral aromas followed by zesty citrus peel, pink grapefruit and blood orange flavours. It's light-bodied, bone dry and crisp. Enjoy with spicy flaky fish tacos. Tasted March 2018 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
