Château Coussin la Croix du Prieur Rose 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The soils of the Sainte Victoire Cotes de Provence sub-appellation are composed of clay and limestone that are unique in their origin from ancient stony alluvial deposits from mountain torrents. These soils are known locally as Puyloubier. Viticulture has been present in this area dating back 2,600 years ago to the ancient Greeks. While ancient traditions abound the winery is a state of the art facility and every attention is given to preserving the bright and aromatic aspects of the spectacular fruit that Chateau Coussin produces. The Croix du Prieur label is the second wine of Chateau Coussin.

Cinsault (practicing organic) - Funky on the nose with earthy, spicy berry notes framed with spicy herb and ivy. Bright and light in the mouth with a juicy core of acid wrapped in a gentle blanket of wild strawberry fruits that yields to a moderate long melon ring and herb. This is delicious and so well balanced. A lovely rose with a building lifted spice tone on the finish. 88pts

Watermelon aromas with a floral hint. The melon flavors carry through to the palate, mixing with some deeper red fruit. Good acidity, refreshing, a bit of tomato. Nice wine.

Nice and crisp with a burst of strawberry, watermelon and pineapple. Bit of effervescence gives it a nice freshness.

One of the better roses I have had this season.
