THE PALE ROSÉ – PAYS du VAR – 2020

93 points from TASTING PANEL:  Aromas of candied orange peel and mineral-kissed white flowers are clean and inviting.  Pink grapefruit is washed by a meringue sweetness and tempered by cherry pith.  The dynamic streak of crushed stone races across the palate, with melon and lilac on the finish

SENTIER ROSÉ – COTEAUX d’AIX-en-PROVENCE- 2020

Vigneron Philippe Pouchin has been farming organically since the 1990s, striving to raise vines that are healthy and in harmony with their surroundings.  The results are clear in this delectable rose, which strikes the perfect balance between elegant and affordable.  Notes of sweet red berries and delicate spice are followed by a refreshingly mineral finish.  35% grenache, 35% syrah, 30% cinsault.
