  • Le Rosé, IGP Vaucluse — 2022 – Wine Spectator – 90 Points

    “An elegant, aromatic rosé, with nice lift to the candied strawberry, white tea and rose petal notes. Stony and pure, with savory details of dried thyme and salty minerality adding range. Firm through the refined finish.”

  • Rosé, IGP Vaucluse — 2022 – Vinous – 91 Points

    '"The 2022 Rosé Vaucluse is pale pink with orange hues in the glass. The bouquet slowly forms, showing savory herbs, crushed stone and tomato leaf. Further coaxing brings forward young peach and lemon oils. This envelops the palate with ripe pit fruits and sweet spice hints. A crunchy sensation appears as saline minerals collect toward the close. The 2022 finishes perfumed and light on its feet. Ripe melon notes bring the taster back to the glass."
