Reviews and Ratings

Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Beautiful pink hue. Strong aromas of strawberry and a hint of grass. Don't let the colour fool you, this rosé is dry with slightly effervescence and flavours of cranberry, berry and a bit of citrus.

Great to pair with seafood, salads, or to sip on its own.

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Perfect for summer! Aromas of strawberry, orange blossom, and a hint of pink grapefruit and roses. Dry, balanced, and easy drinking. Lots of fruit and berry notes on the palate. Enjoy with salads with fruity vinaigrette, or lightly seared tuna.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This Rose has aromas of clementine, field strawberries, herbal notes, and a kick of white pepper. On the palate, it is dry with grapefruit, strawberry, and lemon flavours. It is fresh and crisp with a long finish.

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

An attractive colour - reminiscent of fresh, cold, salmon sashimi. A blend of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gamay, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Zweigelt. 24 hours skin contact induce a fruit forward aromatics showing, strawberry vanilla cookies, ripe watermelon, cantaloupe, pineapple, pink peonies and fresh spearmint. Flavours bring red delicious apples, yellow pears, blueberries and a stony spicy cinnamon finish. Fairly well balanced, dry with melon sweetness and easy drinking. Lively! Indeed this would be a great fit to match earlier said salmon sashimi in addition to sushi, soft cheeses and shrimp cocktail. 88 points - tasted July 2018
Luc Delorme rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

A nice, light, but rather dry rosé. More French than American in style. Refreshing and easy drinking, makes a good sipper but has enough acidity to be paired with seafood or even some salads.
