“There’s more to the 2017 IGP Vaucluse Le Rose than attractive forward fruit, so it should drink well through the end of next year. Subtle strawberry, peach and melon notes are delivered on a medium-bodied, silky-textured palate and a long finish. A fifth of this blend of Grenache (65%), Syrah (13%), Rolle (12%), Cinsault (5%) and Mourvèdre (5%) was fermented and aged in used demi-muids, no doubt adding to the textural element on the palate.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, November 2018

“From vines grown at 550m. With its pale salmon pink colour, this has attractive aromatics between fruit and flowers, with an extra savoury dimension. The rich mouthfeel is cut through with glistening Ventoux acidity, leading on to a lengthy finish.” – Decanter, November 2018

“The 2017 IGP Vaucluse Rosé is a Provençal beauty that offers fabulous notes of strawberries, spice, and salty mineralogy  It’s clean, pure and elegant, with bright acidity.” – Jeb Dunnuck
