Xavier Flouret Rosé Blend Côtes de Provence Nationale 7 2011
The vineyard is located 35 kilometers from the sea at an altitude of between 140 and 190 meters. The terrain is composed of crystalline rock with sand and gravelly soil. Rimauresq, on a North-West orientation, is at the foot of the Maures range of mountains, which provides extra morning shade resulting in a longer ripening period.

The wine that I tried was argentinian, but otherwise met this description. Too acidic for my liking.
Elegant and very fruity. I tasted a lot of pear and honeydew.
The taste is elegant with subtle floral nose. Full-fruited. Excellent!

External Reviews for Xavier Flouret Rosé Blend Côtes de Provence Nationale 7
Smooth and caramel-flavored, this has a feeling of weight and richness. Its texture is soft, with a tang of spice and peppered lemon zest. The name of the wine refers to the old trunk road that ran from Paris to Provence.
Bright scents of cherry and rose lighten the earthier notes of this Rioja. It ends gentle and clean, with a mouthwatering bond of fruit and tannins. For roast lamb with pequillo peppers.
Bright red. Red- and blackcurrant on the nose, with notes of tobacco, vanilla and cocoa powder and a subtle toasty quality. Smooth, supple and gently sweet, offering palate-staining dark berry preserve and bitter cherry flavors, with dusty tannins lending grip. The mocha note repeats on the finish, which is sweet, focused and long.
Food Pairings for Xavier Flouret Rosé Blend Côtes de Provence Nationale 7
The light and shiny salmon color, very nice expression on the nose, with white peaches and strawberries aromas. The mouth display a nice acidity, with red berries aromas and a fresh minerality.
