Chateau de Campuget Tradition de Campuget Costières de Nimes Rosé 2010
A blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache, the Campuget Tradition displays an intense peony pink color. Its bouquet is very aromatic, exhaling scents of small red fruits such as raspberries or blackcurrants. In the mouth there is a perfect balance between vivacity and a certain roundness. A terrific poolside quaff.
