Le Rosé, IGP Vaucluse
"The finest Rosé yet from this estate, the 2016 Vaucluse Rosé sports a salmon/pink tinged color to go with clean, crisp, fabulously perfumed notes of orange rind, citrus and salty minerality. While this beauty has depth and texture, it has thrilling cut and purity on the palate as well. Count me as a fan and I’d be thrilled to drink bottles over the coming 6-7 months."
"Limpid orange. Mineral-accented red currant, raspberry and blood orange aromas show excellent clarity and pick up a suave candied lavender nuance as the wine opens up. Concentrated yet lithe on the palate, offering intense red berry and bitter orange pith flavors that pick up a spicy quality on the back half..."
"... On the palate it's bone dry but again full of fruit, deep and persistent and with just the merest hint of tannin to give structure alongside the bright acidity. Refreshing, serious and long. Could be drunk on its own or at the table. Perfect balance.”
