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.

Triennes Cotes de Provence Rosé 2018
2017 Review: In 1989, two Burgundians, Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de Villaine (DRC) dipped their toe in Rosè! "​Very pale in colour. Simple pleasures done well here, delivering a wine for easy drinking rather than contemplation, and there’s nowt wrong with that. Flavours are a musky light strawberry with rose water, pretty much dry, with a little chalkiness to the texture and a solid finish. Nicely done. Alcohol: 12.5%; Price: $25; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2018 - 2021; Rated: 91 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

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
Reviews on the 2016: Made from a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet. "Pale brilliant orange. Nervy and focused on the nose, displaying vibrant citrus pith, red berry and mineral scents and a hint of white pepper. Tangy and light on its feet, offering bitter red currant and orange zest flavors and a touch of herbacity. In a racy, sharply focused style, delivering firm closing bite and citrusy persistence. Josh Raynolds, Vinous

Rameau d'Or Cotes de Provence Rosé 2017 
This Provence has good depth of flavour, richness and the finish has harmony and persistence. Bursting with delicate aromas of wild strawberries and delicate spicy notes reminiscent of rose petal. On the palate, the wine shows immediate soft berry-fruit flavours that are immediately appealing. It suits ape´ritif drinking, but is also a superb accompaniment to grilled seafood, creamy risotto and pasta dishes. A crisp, dry finish with exceptional length rounds off this wine. An outstanding southern French rosé.
