“An outstanding, classically built Provençal rosé”

août 07, 2015

Vivid salmon-skin color. Fresh, incisive aromas of orange zest, redcurrant and white flowers, with hints of honey and lavender in the background. Silky and light on its feet, offering intense red berry and citrus fruit flavors that deepen and spread out with air. Packs a solid punch but comes off as lithe and precise, with excellent finishing cut and floral persistence. Put aside the celebrity cachet of this wine and judge it for what it is: an outstanding, classically built Provençal rosé that happens to be made by the highly esteemed Perrin family of Châteauneufdu-Pape’s Château de Beaucastel, who are joint partners with estate owners Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in this ambitious and deadly serious venture.
