Modest in a simple, fruity and light-bodied red, coming from younger vines but elaborated with the same savoir-faire as every other cuvées. It is surprisingly well-made for the price, with aromas of red berries, cherry and rose; the finish is refreshing and lively. We all love a good and honest red and this is definitely one. You will appreciate it even more if you drink it slightly chilled.

What experts say  
  
88-90 "Tasted from barrel and similarly styled, the 2014 Côtes du Roussillon Modeste has lots of saline qualities to go with more strawberry and rose garden aromas and flavors. Don’t let its light color fool you, this has real depth, plenty of flavor and a great texture."
