(2017) A Rhône blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan, this has a vibrant medium-deep colour and immediately fruity aromas of cherry and raspberry: definitely on the more vinous rather than strawberry/bubblegum spectrum. In the mouth a direct acid core sets the tone for a fairly serious, food-friendly pink, though there is a creaminess and touch of softer strawberry to the fruit too. Stylish and long.
(2016) Pale in a Provence stylee, with lots of boosted floral and red cherry fragrance, a touch of cherry bubblegum. The palate is dry and refined, those fruity characters pushing through against a dry acidity.
(2013) 13%, Cork. With its medium cherry colour, a little lighter than the CdR Rosé from Guigal, this blends 50% Cinsault with 30% Syrah and 20% Grenache. It is vinous and fruity with a certain creaminess and lightly toffeed. On the palate there is abundant cherry and raspberry fruit, and a clean, dry finish of apple acidity to freshen.
