87 points. It’s strawberry red in the glass, with a medium viscosity. There are sweet strawberry aromas that are almost identical to the real thing. An inviting kitchen spice tone and rich vanilla scents open up with a soft spin in the glass. A stronger whirl around opens up lots of lemon curd, rose petal, and melon. This is one of the most complex and interesting aromas that I have found in a rose in this price range, in France, or anywhere else, with its ripeness and perfect crispness. Delicate melon and strawberry flavors greet the palate, followed by soft, peachy tones, and a firm minerality. There is the faintest touch of watermelon, before moving into a core of soft violets and an almost creamy finish. This is a very nice wine with excellent structure and perfectly crisp minerals. This is an impressive wine regardless of price, but at just under $8.00 this is unquestionably worth buying.
