Côtes de Provence Rosé 2016
Cold weather in Holland but sunny! Time 2 crack this lovely Provence Rosé.
Miraval - Côtes de Provence Rosé 2016 (88 tsomw points)
Tucked away in its own private valley in the ancient village of Correns – the first organic village in France – Château Miraval covers 500 hectares of land in the heart of Provence.
In the glass a pink salmon color.
On the nose delicate aromas of white flowers, strawberries, red berries and hints of peach and citrus.
On the palate soft but full in the mouth, nicely balanced with lots of fruit and freshness, nice acidity and long aftertaste.
Very well made Rosé from the Perrin Family.
