Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Pale salmon pink with mild raspberry nose, leading to delicate palate of fresh raspberry with slightest touches of lavender and garrique. Mouth-watering acidity makes this a winner with summer foods.
Tasted March 2017
Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous pale salmon colour that tastes like summer! Wild strawberries, rose water, the tartness of cranberry, a hint of lemon and very subtle minerality. A fantastic rosé from Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence!
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous blush pink appearance with divine notes of fresh strawberries, raspberries and orange rind. A perfect summer sipper. It's light-bodied, favourful and easy drinking. Tasted Mar 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Afterglow blush, 13% ABV. A beautiful rose designed to please. Well balanced, integrated alcohol. Mouthwatering acidity, mild tannins, floral, field berry and nectarine persistence with a medium finish. Paired well with seafood in the shell. Summer salads and patio season friendly. Tasted 2016 vintage in March 2017. 90 points.
Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous light salmon colour. An absolutely delightful bouquet of honey, strawberries and rose petals. Dry on the palette, filled with acidity

Great sipper on a summer day for someone who doesn't like their rosé sweet. Perfect for a wedding shower. In terms of food pairings, grilled seafood and a white-sauced pasta would be ideal.

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A lovely rose from Provence, France. Blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Cinsault. Beautiful pinkish salmon color in the glass with a lovely nose of strawberries, honey and hint of floral - A dry wine with beautiful flavors that are so well balanced, bold acidity and lingering finish - lovely from start to finish.
Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This pretty pale pink wine is drier than one would expect, but in a good way! Fruit blossoms and honey on the nose and strawberry flavour. It would pair nicely with your Easter ham.
