26/04/2015 – Famille Negrel, Cotes de Provence Rosé 2014

Famille Negrel, Cotes de Provence Sainte Victoire Rose 2014, France
Well, it’s almost summer and as this wine is also about to go on offer, what a good time to feature my first rose of the season. A typically pale, peachy pink Provence style, the nose all about beautifully delicate summer seeds and fruits: rose-hips and pomengranate, redcurrant, cranberry and ultimate freshness. On the palate a burst of rosy red apple fruit and crunch, more of that small red berry fruit, but all the time a fine, long, shimmering acidity to balance. It is a delicious rose. Bring on the sunshine. 88/100. Watch the video for more information, maps and food-matching ideas. 10.99, Majestic, but 9.99 from 28th April 2015 right through the summer.
