Vinous Media 92
"Pale, vivid orange. Powerful, mineral-tinged red berry and citrus fruit qualities on the nose, along with hints of nectarine and honeysuckle. Densely packed yet lively in style, showing sharp definition to the red currant, strawberry and blood orange flavors, which take on a hint of fennel with air. Finishes impressively long and precise, leaving behind resonating floral and mineral notes and a touch of spiciness. - Josh Raynolds -- Vinous"

From the noble hill of Bandol, home to arguably the finest rosés in the world, the wine is bursting with flavors of oyster shells and sea spray, combined with juicy cherry and blood orange zest
Founded in 1903, the 200-hectare Finca Torremilanos in Aranda de Duero is the second-oldest wine-producing estate in what is now Ribera del Duero DO (after Vega Sicilia). The current regime dates to the late 70s and was instrumental in the establishment of the DO in 1982. Pilar Pérez Albéniz, one of the most respected women in the region and winner of the inaugural ‘Ribera Heritage’ Award in 2019, is still at the helm, with two of her sons, Ricardo and Vicente, handling winemaking and sales respectively. The first-ever Demeter-certified biodynamic winery in the appellation, as of 2015. A family-run gem that marches to the beat of its own drummer in producing both traditionally-styled and experimental wines.

Bieler Pere et Fils
Continuing the reputation for great-value wine that he built with his family over 13 years at Chateau Routas and the last three years with Three Thieves, Charles Bieler has been creating this delicious Provençal rosé for the last 5 years: Bieler Père et Fils Rosé.
Bieler Père et Fils is an homage to Charles's father, Philippe, who ushered he and his sister Mira into the wine business in the mid-1990s. This particular bottling was named after Charles's daughter, Sabine, who was born in 2005, the year of the wine's inaugural vintage.
