A very popular Rose, with unique packaging and a delicious wine inside! A delicate and dry style from France's Mediterranean south, this label celebrates a place called the Cotes de Roses on the coastal plains near Gruissan and Narbonne. The special glass-stoppered bottle looks like a rose when up-turned. A wonderful aperitif and seafood wine, and a very beautiful gift!
Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"A soft, pale, brilliant pink with bluish tints developing over time towards more orangey nuances. The bouquet releases aromas of summer fruits, cassis and redcurrant. Floral notes of rose along with hints of grapefruit complete the picture. The finish is fresh, offering notes of candy. On the palate the impression is fresh and full, with great aromatic persistence and balance. Pairs well as an as an aperitif or with shellfish and subtly spiced dishes."

90/100 Wine Enthusiast (2019 Vintage)
"A pale coppery-pink colour, this rosé made from Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault opens with aromas of freshly pressed sweet pea and peony combined with notes of white cherry and watermelon rind. The palate is light and easy to enjoy, but with a ripe-fruit character that lends a satisfying impression. A touch of herbal spiciness and tangy pithy citrus provides length and interest through the close."

"Tasted blind. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault. Long-necked droplet-shaped bottle with a rose carved into the punt underneath. Pale powder-puff pink. Savoury, minerally, strawberry-chalk-dust style. White pepper! Bit of a bite. Lovely food rosé. Long structure and long draw and then elegant spice that pulls through and though. Powdered lemon zest."
90/100 & Wine of the Week, Gillian Sciaretta, Wine Spectator, June 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Clean and fresh, with a delicate, balanced profile of white raspberry, cherry and lemon zest supported by lightly tangy acidity. Hints of mineral and herb show on the finish. A Provence-style rosé. Drink now."
