attractive pink robe; the bouquet is well furnished with ripe red cherry, crushed strawberry fruit with a note of toffee, has depth, and suggest pairing with firmly flavoured dishes. It’s no patsy. The palate sets off well on a steady run of red-fruited content, with a savoury tone to it. It holds well along the palate, finishes with a juicy firmness, definitely prompting an à table agenda. The length is sure here. 13°. To late-2021. Aug 2020

bright pink; compact, elegant nose that expresses strawberry, with a slight note of sweetness, all inviting. The palate sets off with sound red fruit, a little run of gras richness that shows well now. This has the weight for food, bears just a bit of sweetness. Enjoyable, and well mannered rosé. 13°. To 2017 Apr 2015

pink robe of appealing depth. Redcurrant and quince fruit airs, good snap in the bouquet, herbes de Provence, local aromas. The palate moves with fluid gras richness, cool lines throughout. Good grip, cool quince fruit that is tight and bears subtle notes of lavender, red cherry.  Fresh tight, nicely full – drink this with Provençal dishes – fish soup, aioli. The finish is neat, tight. 13°. €3.60 ex cellars. To 2016  Oct 2013
