Chateau Routas Coteaux Varois En Provence Rosé 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lemon, chalk and wild raspberry aromas greet the nose along with a sweet tarry edge. An unusually textured wine, rather soft and supple but at the same time firm and tight. There’s nice fruit here, a bit too much sugar adding richness for this to be dry, but the flavors of cherry and raspberry flecked with spicy mineral notes are attractive. The finish is bursting with grapefruit pith, peach and raspberry fruit, all dusted with a suggestion of white pepper. This is really quite lovely. 88pts

The location of Routas is spectacular; in the heart of Provence, equidistant from the French Riviera on the Mediterranean coast and the foothills of the Alps. It is surrounded by tiny medieval villages that cling to steep cliffs and overlooks miles of spectacular hillsides, woods and rivers. Currently 12,000 cases are produced of Rhone-style, estate-grown and bottled wines that have been met with positive comment since their first vintage in 1992. In 2005 Scotland's Sir David Murray took ownership, ushering in a new era for Chateau Routas. Read less
