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.
The taste is elegant with subtle floral nose. Full-fruited. Excellent!
Elegant and very fruity. I tasted a lot of pear and honeydew.

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.
