Natalie's Score: 92/100

Freshness is everything in this wine. Grenache is ideal for rosé because it matures easily and quickly, has vibrant aromatics, yet keeps its zesty acidity for food. This lovely southern French rosé is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah grapes. It's elegant, yet full-bodied for rosé and very satisfying. This grape has a short vegetative cycle and yields enough for production while keeping the fresh character. The bottle for this rosé was created in a competition for students at design schools in Paris. There is actually a rose shape cut into the glass on the bottom, as well as an elegant glass stopper on the top. Pair with planked salmon or seared tuna.

Rosé food pairings: Seared tuna, Sushi, Seafood Nebayaki Udon.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

One of my absolutely favourite rosés! It's dry, tasty, refreshing, and has pretty blush pink appearance. Not to mention the beautiful bottle designed with a rose shape cut at the base. Aromas show moderate wild strawberry notes with loads of zesty lemony flavours. It's easy drinking and refreshing. Enjoy with steam buttered lobster claws.

This wine delivers great value. Rose gold. Declared 13.5%. Refreshing, great acidity, dry. Field berry and delicate citrus on the palate. Paired well with Thai shrimp stir fry. Tasted 2016 vintage in June 2017. 91 points Bespoke Tastings
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Such a lovely, refreshing wine. From the South-of France, this wine comes in a feminine looking bottle and is not only pretty on the eyes, but displays gorgeous notes of ripe, wild strawberries and citrus lemon on the palate. A perfect choice to enjoy all summer long. Tasted June, 2017
This rosé from the Languedoc in the Midi wine region is from Gérard Bertrand. Côte Des Roses (2016) is fresh and vibrant with crushed strawberries, rose petals and herbs. The wine is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah grapes. Pale pink and elegant, it is lovely on its own or with planked salmon or grilled chicken. - Community Wine Reviews
