Commanderie De La Bargemone - Rose Provence
|Producer||Commanderie De La Bargemone|
"Pale cherry color, the rosé wine of Bargemone offers aromas of flowers and red berries, which make it harmonious and balanced."
"This rich, structured wine, with its high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon, is ripe and fruity. It has plenty of orange peel and red-berry freshness, finishing with a warm, full aftertaste." -Wine Enthusiast
The terrific (and fairly priced) 2018 Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rose stood out among the 139 rosés I tasted blind during my late February trip to Provence. It combines hints of cantaloup with cassis in a medium-bodied, silky-textured wine that shows just a hint of leafiness on the finish. The blend is 40% Grenache, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, and 5% Rolle.
