"Amazing aromas of lilac flowers and roses. White peaches and fresh pears. Full body, tight and compacted with amazing depth and finesse. The phenolic tension and texture suggest a rosé that will improve for many years ahead. This is a great wine. Drink now."

This is a serious wine with a lighter brighter side. Its wood aging adds spice to the ripe red fruits and brings out the concentration and intensity. It is, in its way, an unexpected side of Provence rosé, emphasizing richness and complexity. But it all comes together: a fine wine that, after a year of aging, is ready to drink.

"Light brilliant orange-pink. Intense, expansive aromas of fresh red berries, orange, peach and vanilla, accompanied by smoky mineral and floral overtones. Sappy, concentrated and smoky on the palate, offering densely packed raspberry, tangerine and buttered toast flavors and a repeating vanilla note. Blind, I'd have guessed that this was a serious white Burgundy. Shows outstanding energy and mineral lift on the very long, supple finish, which echoes the floral and smoke notes."

"A rosé of a different color, so to speak, featuring a noticeably creamy edge around a core of perfumy peach, apricot and mango notes. Stays lithe and elegant through the finish, with hints of bergamot and wet stone. Grenache and Rolle. Drink now. 1,500 cases made. — JM"
"Extremely transparent and pale rosé color. Concentrated aromas and flavors of dried citrus give the rosé plenty of power. Glazed pear and pineapple fill the mid palate, and the creamy finish features rich, spicy notes. Powerful and elegant. Reminds me of a vintage Champagne like Krug with out the bubble. “Garrus, this is arguably the best rosé on earth." - Importer
