"A quintessential Provencal rosé, the light salmon colored 2014 Coteaux d'Aix rose gives up lots of red currants, dried strawberries, dusty pebble and dried flower notes on the nose. This flows to a fresh, focused and classically styled dry rose that has bright acidity, beautiful balance and a clean finish. Outstanding on all accounts, and just what you're looking for when you need a dry rose for a hot summer day or to kick off a meal, drink this beauty anytime over the coming 5-7 months."

"A regular favorite in our tastings, this estate produced a 2014 that shines in the glass with a silvery brightness. It feels just as electric in flavor, the acidity imbuing the fruit with the fragrant juiciness of a Charentais melon, a quiet, smokey minerality riding underneath. It feels complete and elegant, the flavors lasting and energetic"

"Light orange-pink. Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas of fresh strawberry and blood orange, with a sexy floral nuance emerging with air. Dry and sharply focused on the palate, offering tangy red berry and succulent herb flavors that deepen with air. The mineral note comes back strong on the finish, which lingers with very good focus and persistence." ~ Josh Raynolds

"Pale eye of the partridge. Fresh, balanced, crisp and dry, this is a fragrant, easy-drinking wine with light flavors of berries and herbs. Very good."
" Bargemone is among the foremost estates of the Coteaux d’Aix appellation of Provence. A benchmark producer of the delicious, dry rosé for which Provence is famous, the Commanderie was founded by Templar knights in the13th century, and is home to a proud viticultural tradition and more than 160 acres of sustainably grown vineyards. *Sustainably-grown, certified QualiSud.
Offers classic aromas of wild strawberries and red currants, with a light, floral character and a crisp, bone-dry palate. A rosé of reference, to be enjoyed year-round on its own or with a wide range of lighter fare and Provence-inspired cuisine.
36% Grenache, 26% Cinsault, 21% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Rolle. " ~ Winery notes

An authentic Rose de Provence at an affordable price - I usually do not buy roses because they are priced too high for the quality. This is an exception and reminds me of roses enjoyed in France. Don't make the mistake of serving it too cold as the cold masks the subtle, fresh flavors.
