I'm really not much of a rose kinda guy, but I have to admit that I enjoyed this for what it is. This wine is quite fruity, with definite notes of strawberry and other red fruits. Purchased for consumption on a hot day (for without food), I initially served this at too low a temperature, resulting in an unpleasant bitterness. As the wine rose to a more appropriate temperature, the nose and taste opened up in a pleasing way, becoming smoother and richer, without losing the simplicity that gives such a wine its mid-summer's day appeal. I probably won't buy again, as I prefer a crisp white on a hot day, but I don't regret having purchased the one bottle.

From an estate thatrsquo;s been in the Quiot family since 1890, this wine is succulent in its sweet strawberry and melon flavors spiced with light pepper and herb notes. It lingers, teasingly. For a smoked-bacon BLT.

Light pink. Dusty, floral-accented aromas of redcurrant, strawberry and rhubarb, with a mineral nuance. Dry, taut and energetic on the palate, offering nervy red berry and citrus flavors that pick up weight and saltiness with air. Quintessential Provenccedil;al roseacute;, with the vivacity to work by itself or with a range of foods.

Shows a pretty salmon color, with melon and strawberry flavors. Spicy notes pervade the finish, which has good length. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvegrave;dre and others. Drink now.

Salmon pink-colored wine that has crushed fresh strawberry flavors to go with the dense texture and tannins. Rich, full-bodied.

Bright medium pink. Musky red berries and cherry on the nose, with a light floral quality adding complexity. Spicy redcurrant and wild strawberry flavors are light in body and gently lifted by subtle minerality. An understated style, and well-suited to aperitif duty.
