2012 Commanderie de la Bargemone Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rosé

SKU #1123518 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 One of my go to Provencal rosés, the 2012 Commanderie de la Bargemone Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence Rosé is another beauty. Very pale in color, it nevertheless has loads of flavor, with plenty of melon, orange peel and floral aromas to go with a medium-bodied, racy palate that has both richness and freshness. Buy this beauty by the case and enjoy bottles over the coming year or so.  (6/2013)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 (made from a blend of grenache, cinsault, syrah and cabernet sauvignon): Pale peach skin color. Aromas of tangerine, pit fruit, lavender and chalky minerals. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering sappy nectarine and citrus fruit flavors sharpened by a kick of white pepper. Closes with very good energy, thrust and length, leaving notes of soft citrus and pit fruits behind.  (7/2013)

Wine Enthusiast

 Lively, crisp wine from an estate founded by the Knights Templar in the 13th century. It is full of delicious red fruits, light acidity and a nervy, mineral aftertaste.  (7/2013)
