Riotor Cotes de Provence Rosé 2015
Made from a blend of 40% Grenache, 50% Cinsault, 7% Syrah and 3% Vermentino. This beautifully perfumed dry rosé is from vineyards in the heart of the magnificent Massif des Maures mountains in Provence. Farmed and made by the owners of Chateau Mont-Redon from Chateauneuf-du-Pape. "Pale pink. Strawberry, orange zest and white pepper aromas and flavors, joined by a subtle floral nuance in the glass. Minerally and taut in the mouth, loosening up with air and showing good energy. Finishes with good, stony lift and vivacity, leaving a red berry note behind." Josh Raynolds; Vinous; June 2016
Domaine de Triennes Rosé 2015
In 1989, two Burgundians, Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de Villaine, joined by their Parisian friend, Michel Macaux, went in search of new vineyards. Their attention turned to Provence where they were convinced the potential for great wines was enormous. After a long search, they discovered the Domaine du Logis de Nans in the Var, east of Aix en Provence. They were immediately attracted to its gently sloping hillside with southern exposure. They saw its cool microclimate and its clay and limestone soils as ideal for viticulture. The estate was renamed Triennes, a reference to Triennia, the festival for Bacchus, which was held every three years during Roman times. The prefix "Tri" serving as a reminder of the three original partners.
Le Saint Andre Rosé 2015
Made from a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet. Pale, salmon pink hue. Charming nose of summer berries fused with herbaceous and citrus characters. Typical Provence style on the palate that starts with a silky texture of summer red berry fruits with added white peach, uplifting acidity that adds freshness and a mouth watering balance that flows through onto a long lingering red currant finish. One of those wines that you don’t need to think about or obsess over, just gentle, lacy, full of pretty fruit and faint minerals. Chill it down, un-screw the cap, pour a long glass and simply enjoy.
Les Trois Cotes de Provence Rosé 2015
This is delicate and flavoursome at the same time. Inviting aromas of citrus, stone fruit and floral with a touch of ripe strawberry on the nose. It is juicy and brightly flavoured on the palate, and offers elegant fruit intensity and crisp acidity, finishing persistent and mouth-watering. A fabulous dry rendition offering plenty of attractive flavours. At its best: now to 2018. $23.00. June 2016. Rating: 91 Points; Sam Kim - wineorbit.co.nz
