2013 Château La Gordonne Côtes de Provence Rosé

SKU #1156405 90 points Wine & Spirits

 A blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah off an 865-acre estate in Provence, this pale orange rosé stands out for its satiny texture. The flavors are quiet but fresh, the fruit recalling strawberries with all their seeds in its sweet-nutty balance. Pour it with richer dishes, like brandade de morue.  (8/ 2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Giving up plenty of wild strawberry, wild herbs and herbes de Provence-styled aromas and flavors, the 2013 Cotes de Provence Rose is medium-bodied, nicely balanced and refreshing, with enough texture to handle the dinner table, and enough freshness to stand on its own. Plan on drinking bottles over the coming 6-8 months.  (5/ 2014)

K&L Notes

Chateau La Gordonne is located in the heart of Provence, where the warm, mild climate is perfect for varietals like Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvedre and other regional varieties to achieve the perfect balance of fruit and phenolic ripeness for being made into delicious, refreshing rose. Grapes are harvested at night by hand and fermented cool to further preserve acidity. Added skin contact enchanced this wine's beautiful pink color along with its irresistible punchy red berry and tropical fruit aromas and flavors. Served chilled, this will pair with many dishes, from light seafood and salads to spicier cuisines.
