The 'real' refers to Côtes de Provence Rosé, the spiritual home of Rosé, the wines that allow us to truly appreciate the best examples of the style. The paler colours, the fresh fruit, the balancing dryness and acidity, the wonderful refreshing texture. It is our desire to remind wine lovers just how good the style is and even introduce a whole new generation of Rosé drinkers

Rameau d'Or Cotes de Provence Rosé 2018
A little youthful banana ester, but under that a pale classic savoury style with pear, redcurrant, and a musk perfume. It’s subtle and dry, with a fine chalky texture, ease of drinking appeal, plus a bit of complexity. Raspberry and almond meal on a satisfying finish. Tasted: Jun 19; Alcohol: 13%; Price: $31; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2020-2022; Rated: 93 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

Triennes Cotes de Provence Rosé 2018
In 1989, two Burgundians, Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de Villaine (DRC) dipped their toe in Rosè! The 2018 Triennes displays a delicious red-berry perfume with hints of watermelon and pink grapefruit. Subtle citrus and verbena notes lift the palate, combined with generous acidity and a moreish saline note on the finish. This is a wonderfully balanced, refreshing and vibrant rosé. Drink now to 2020. Fiona Hayes; BBR

Riotor Cotes de Provence Rosé 2017 
Made from a blend of 40% Grenache, 50% Cinsault, 7% Syrah and 3% Vermentino. Farmed and made by the owners of Chateau Mont-Redon from Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Just a few months of lees aging can add a pleasantly silky texture, as seen in Riotor's 2017 Cotes de Provence Rose. Attractive hints of struck flint add complexity to the peach and raspberry aromas, while the light to medium-bodied palate draws to a mouthwatering, softly textural close". Rating: 90 Points; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

Le Saint Andre Cotes de Provence Rosé 2018
Made from a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet from fruit purchased from selected terroirs and partner winegrowers. The grapes are bought on the vine, harvested by hand and then vinified at the domaine. "This delicious rosé from the south of France is ideal for late summer evenings as a starter wine or to match light suppers on the patio. Tasted: August 2019; Alcohol: 13%; Dave McIntyre; The Washington Post
