Domaine LaFage Miraflors Rosé 2017Pale pink with fresh, spicy aromas. The palate is lively with abundant fruit and spices and a nice roundness in the finish.
Chateau Miraval Côtes de Provence Rosé 2017Beautiful, pale, petal-pink color, elegant with bright nuances. A beautiful aromatic expression with aromas of fresh fruit and spring flowers, refreshing acidity, with great minerality and a saline finish. This Miraval 2016 is a perfect interpretation of the vintage in Provence.
Château-de-Pourcieux Cotes de Provence Rose 2017Stylish rosé, with rich flavors of apricot, ripe peach and cantaloupe with smoky,spicy notes. Rich, almost creamy finish, with palate cleansing acidity. Full, rich wine, both fruity and ripely textured. The wine has weight, concentrated red fruits, with a touch of citrus. Typically dry, its richness makes it seem soft, rounded and for food. Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah.
Bonny Doon Vin Gris de Cigare 2016The ’16 Vin Gris is a bit of a departure from recent vintages, somewhat deeper in color and definitely a bit fruitier than some, though the fruit is perhaps (at least at this stage) more of the dark and brooding variety, particularly suggestive of black currants, Damson plum and rosehips. In our modern world, one must never, ever, ever, make anything like a health claim for an alcoholic beverage. Les français, on the other hand, have no difficulty believing that a properly selected wine can remediate, if not cure almost any medical or existential complaint. So, no, I’m not saying that the Vin Gris has a calmative effect on jangled nerves, nor that it creates an immense feeling of well-being almost immediately upon just scenting it, even before the first sip. (Though it does smell an awful lot like any of the sundry tisanes (tilleul, eglantine) that will definitely do you some good.) Its perfume is subtle, haunting, not vulgar or tawdry, like some of the louche rosés de la nuit. Enfin, this wine is all about elegance and restraint. Rosehips, cassis, fraises de bois, citrus rind, with a wonderfully austere stony finish. 49% Grenache, 19% Grenache Blanc, 13% Mourvèdre, 12% Carignane, 4% Cinsaut, 3% Roussanne. - Winery Notes.
