(at Montferrier-sur-Lez, France, 30 Apr 2021)
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2022
Prettily packaged in a dumpy bottle, this petal-pink wine has classic creamy, teasing Provence aromas: acacia blossom, whispered fruit, pounded almond. On the palate, it’s a little brisker than you expect (promptly harvested to keep the acidity fresh?), and the fruits (tangerine, strawberry, lemon) have an appealing saline edge. There’s plenty of vinosity and structure to carry the wine and give it palate presence; look out for a faint anis hint afterwards. Sourced from Ch. Ste Roseline at Arcs-sur-Argens.
