The label is from an original and exclusive artwork by Miquel Barcelo, a world renowned spanish-born contemporary artist. A traveler since his early years, he fulfi lls a constant thirst for cultural diversity by sharing his time between Paris, Mali and his native Majorca. With influences as wide ranging as Velasquez, Tintoretto, Rembrandt and Dubuffet, he was the youngest artist ever to be exhibited at the Louvre and is currently exhibiting at the Picasso Museum in Paris. Drawing inspiration from his Majorcan and Spanish culture, this vibrant artwork is a perfect metaphor for this aromatic and lively wine.

“One of the gems is the 2016 Vaucluse Pont des Arts Rosé, which is up there with the finest Rosés produced. It offers beautiful strawberry, wild flowers, wet stone and framboise notes in a medium-bodied, clean, impeccably balanced style that spans the gap between the lightly flavors Provencal Rosés and the richer Tavel styled Rosés. It’s going to shine on the dinner table over the coming summer months, and I suspect drink nicely even through the winter.” – Jeb Dunnuck
“Brilliant orange-pink. High-pitched red berry and blood orange aromas are complemented by suggestions of lavender and chalky minerals. Juicy and incisive on the palate, offering refreshingly bitter red currant, cherry and orange zest flavors that show excellent clarity and a vibrant mineral undertone…” – Josh Raynolds, Vinous
