Hugh and Jane Faulkner fell in love with a vineyard, situated on the foothills of the Masif des Maures, in the centre of the Var, and settled at the property in 1989. Their eldest son Julian would eventually take over the running of the vineyard in 2000. A shrewd wine businessman and talented vigneron, Julian established the Jules label with the mission to craft delicious, accessible, and great value wines with single estate personality.
Pure Provence in style, this is a great all-occasions wine, and a first rate introduction to French rosé. Made and priced to over-deliver. From a riper vintage, this release is a little more fruit forward than usual, and that’s no bad thing. Full in the mouth and with an extra layer of juicy zestiness, classic strawberries and cream with a drop of mandarin juice, and a bittering, complexing finish, akin to the closing bite of a good gin and tonic. An easy wine to love and everything it should be – refreshing, straightforward, delicious and highly moreish!
Straight-down-the line good rosé drinking here. Red fruit, some citrus tang, a bit of rosehip, a minor amount of fruit sweetness, and dash of quinine-like bitterness and grip on a solid finish. Easy to enjoy. Tasted: Mar 2020; Alcohol: 12.5%; Price: $20; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2020-2022; Rated: 91 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
