Château les Valentines Rosé 2016 Côtes de Provence

The flagship rosé of the Château is slightly more complex and fruity than the "Caprice de Clementine", due to the small proportion of Syrah and Mourvèdre. The pure flavours of gooseberry, citrus and roses end up on a mineral and long finish. Delicious!

89/100 "Wild berry, herbal aromas; generous palate with ripe sweetness, high acidity, smoked stones and fine spice."

87/100 "This has a ripe edge, with a mix of white cherry and white raspberry notes. Stays rounded and inviting through the finish. A light stony echo keeps this honest. Drink now."

90/100 "This estate wine is packed with attractive fruit. With grapefruit and orange-zest flavors, it is tightly crisp. Set against that are the ripe red-currant and berry fruitiness, layers of acidity and a pinch of pepper. Drink this refreshing wine now."
