Cotes du Provence Rose Domaine Houchart 2012
Soft pink and exceptional clarity. The Domaine Houchart Rose has an inviting nose with raspberry, and touches of herbs de provence. Palate is poised with acidity and balance of fresh berries and pink grapefruit. This develops wonderfully in the glass. Simple, classic rose - Zachys Buying Team
REALLY happy with this one as a bright, simple yet interesting dry Provence rose. A fragrant and pretty nose: fresh, simple and sweet with notes of freesia, honey, cantaloupe, and soft citrus/meyer lemon. Bright on the palate as well, with all the above, slight blueberry? notes, and some minerality tempered by a surprising mouth filling softness and notes of almond/marzipan. Well integrated acid and surprisingly long finish. Perhaps the best value I've found in a rose from provence thus far.
External Reviews for Cotes du Provence Rose Domaine Houchart
Light, bright orange-pink. Spicy citrus pith and red berries on the nose, with notes of herbs and white pepper adding complexity. Firm, focused and racy, offering tart cranberry and orange flavors and a late note of tarragon. Refreshingly dry on the finish.
Caramel and spice flavored that is full-bodied and rich. With its weight, this red plum and ripe strawberry flavored wine is for food, dry and finishing with just the right amount of acidity. Screwcap.
