Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Refreshing and lively blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah from Cotes des Provence. Light salmon orange colour with an abundant bouquet. Fresh strawberry ice cream mixed with raspberry sorbet, apricots, soft ripe watermelon and white peach. This comes together elegantly with fresh lively flavours revealing spicy nectarines, apricot, nutmeg and a biting stoney minerality that resembles a salty sea-splash. High acidity is excellently balanced with the crisp fruitiness found here. A simple dry rose with a peppermint and orange zest whisper at the end. Enjoy year round. Perfect with shrimp cocktail. 89 Points
Esprit Gassier (2016) is made by Château Gassier. Pale coral in the glass, this Côtes De Provence rosé is red berries, cherries and orange citrus zest on the nose and palate. Drink now with grilled seafood bites. - Community Wine Reviews
