Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A charming rose with a pale pinky-peach colour, fresh strawberry, pink grapefruit, melon on the nose and the palate and an alluring hint of almond and black pepper on the back end. Great with a charcuterie platter on the patio before dinner.
Lynn Van Der Linde rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Delicate pink typical of many Southern France roses, with citrus aromas and a fresh grapefruit finish. A perfect pairing with white fish or oil drizzled pasta.
Tasted August 2017.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
