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.

Beautiful Color! Pale, floral nose. Surprisingly a little spicy and tannic. Grapefruit. Slight bitterness, but not unpleasant. Fast finish, super palate cleanser. Bone dry.

The Dardé brothers are well known for their exemplary red wines of deep concentration. However, their best-kept secret may be their Rosé. Made from three grapes, the wine exudes red fruits and a strawberry perfume. This Rosé is a blend of 60% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre and comes from tiny berries of forty-plus year old vines. Fermented a short time on its skins, it retains an electric pink color, soaring aromatics, and fully dry palate. Serve well chilled!

A pure style, with watermelon seed, rose water and white cherry notes lined with a tangy hint and backed by a lingering stony finish. Drink now.

Lurid orange-pink. Zesty red berries and white pepper on the incisive nose and in the mouth. Shows good clarity and decent concentration, picking up a subtle floral nuance with air. Finishes on a tangy note, with lingering spiciness and a hint of orange pith.

Almost verging on full-bodied, this fresh, juicy-styled rosé has racy strawberry, cherry and a hint of black currant flavors. The finish is firm and dry with a hint of stone and cherry pit.

Deep raspberry in color, the 2012 Chateau Grande Cassagne Costieres-de-Nimes Rose has a Tavel like bouquet of ripe cherry, underbrush and mineral to go with a medium-bodied, fresh and lightly textured palate. More fresh and lively on the palate than the color or aromas would lead you to believe, this solid effort can be consumed on its own and will be versatile on the dinner table. Enjoy it over the coming year. Drink now–2013.

Shows tangy cherry and blood orange notes, with hints of spice and tea weaving through the lively finish. 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.
