Domaine Houchart. Cotes de Provence. Rose Avail 3-Days 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

A rose from Jerome Quiot, Chateauneuf-du-Pape superstar."Bright orange-pink. Orange zest and dried red fruits on the nose, with floral and spice notes adding complexity. The smooth finish offers very good chewy persistence but no excess fat. This has the heft to work with rich foods." Steve Tanzer’s Internation Wine Cellar.*The silky texture and wonderful body makes this perfect for the summer*. _The newly recognized Sainte Victoire appellation (Provence) lies to the east of Aix-en-Provence, at the foot of the Sainte Victoire mountain._[A blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and Cinsault].
