Had a bottle of 2006 last night while playing dominos with some wine loving friends. Everyone was knocked out with this rose... crisp, dry - but not bone dry, strawberries, rhubarb and wet stones. Lovely.

Fresh and zesty, with slightly confected, bubble-gum-like aromas balanced by bright lime notes and even a bit of chalk-dust minerality to add grip and interest on the finish. Drink now.

Very fresh, with a stony edge lending good definition to the strawberry and cherry fruit, with a racy finish. Drink now.

This soft, inviting rosé hails from the western edge of the Rhône valley and has a blend similar to many red Côtes du Rhônes: Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The wine has a beautiful perfume of strawberry-like fruit and an electric pink/purple reflective element to the color.

Very fresh and juicy, with racy red and black currant fruit laced with a bracing cherry pit hint. Solid length. Drink now.

One of the best rosés I have tasted this spring, Grand Cassagne's 2002 Costieres de Nimes rosé includes 25% Mourvèdre in the blend (the remainder is Grenache and Syrah). Its delicate, light ruby/salmon color is followed by gorgeous aromas of candied strawberries intermixed with raspberries and cherries. This light to medium-bodied, dry rosé possesses admirable weight as well as structure. It is a fascinating effort to enjoy over the next 6-12 months.

Winemaker's Notes:

*The Darde brothers have become quite well known for their explosively fruited dry Rose*. Produced from tiny berries off forty-plus year old vines, the grapes are fermented a short time on their skins, providing an electric pink color, soaring aromatics, and fully dry palate. The Grande Cassagne Rose exudes red fruits and a strawberry perfume. [60% Syrah, 35% Grenache, and 5% Mouvedre]
