Chateau de Fontlade. Aurelia Primae Rose Coteaux Varois En Provence. France 2010
This dry and aromatic rosé has a lovely balance between structure and flavour.It also has a velvety charming mouth, quite unusual for a dry rosé. It is a blend of shiraz and grenache. Once picked it is left to macerate during a whole night before being bled and fermentates at an average temperature of 17° C. This ensures that the wine is always fresh and aromatic. Its deep pink coulour and its wonderfully rich aromas of red fruits and lollipop should seduce you!
Editorial Reviews for Chateau de Fontlade. Aurelia Primae Rose Coteaux Varois En Provence. France
40% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 20% Rolle - This is lightly fruity on the nose but it has an underlying sweetness that supports waxy cherry fruit with gentle chalk tones and a lovely lemon verbena accent. This is really playful in the mouth with a superb fruit/acid balance that allows thus noticeably fruity wine to fill the mouth but remain zippy and energetic at the same time. There’s some fine complexity here, a touch of mineral, some dried herb, a touch of leather, and the wine finishes with a blaze of acid driven red fruits and a long, lingering spice and mineral finale. A party in every bottle! 91pts
Loads of cherries, cranberries, watermelon, and fresh acidity. Rustic, red fruit and berries.
Vibrant berry pink color. Lots of apple and blackberry; nicely balanced.
Fresh acidity made this wine really nice, Light bubble gum flavor with figs and passion fruit
I really enjoyed this rose, I got a floral nose with hints of watermelon and green apple. This is a crisp rose with nice acidity, I would enjoy it on it's own on a warm summer day or evening
