A delicious, elegant, dry Southern Rhône Rosé hailing from respected French winemaker Gabriel Meffre, family-owned since 1936. Terres de Galets Côtes du Rhône takes its name from the smooth, white pebble stones called ‘Galets’ which are found in the vineyards. They reflect the light and heat of the sun to help ripen the grapes and create an intensely fruity, flavourful wine.
This wine is a complex blend of the classic Côtes du Rhône grape varieties Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. Seductive and well-balanced this rose displays floral aromas with hints of strawberry and raspberry infused with delicate herbs. It is fresh, vibrant, fruity, refreshing and easy-drinking in style.

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Pristine and elegant, the delicately expressed bouquet shows apple, fig and citrus peel aromas with a hint of ripe strawberry. It's finely focused and persistent on the palate, offering bright fruit flavours backed by crisp acidity, leading to a lengthy mouth-watering finish. At its best: now to 2022."
92/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2017 Vintage)
"A blend of grenache, syrah and cinsault. Dry, creamy Rosé with strawberry, raspberry, violet, anise and spice flavours. A fresh, balanced wine with a satisfyingly drying, lengthy finish. Quite complex."
Gourmet Travaller Wine, April 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"A classic blend of grenache, syrah and cinsault grown in the stony soils of the Côtes du Rhône where the smooth round pebbles in the vineyard are known as “galets” or “pudding stones” because they look like Christmas puddings. The stones reflect and retain heat for extra ripening. It’s a dry, creamy rosé with strawberry, raspberry, violet and anise/spice flavours. Fresh, crisp wine that’s perfect for summer sipping."
