Tasting notes

Quintessential Provencal grape varieties (Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah) give this rosé a light litchi color and a delicate nose of exotic fruit.

The fresh and full mouth reveals a palate of passion fruit and citrus with a long and elegant finish.

This delicious rose pairs perfectly with Provencal cuisine such as stuffed Provensal garden vegetables or seared scallops with herbs from Provence.
