A classic bottle of Provence rosé from one of the region's best producers, and it's a steal at under $20. Truly reflective of its terroir and varietal composition, the "Tentations" presents pretty floral aromatics up-front that persist on the palate along with dried cranberries, nectarine, and stony minerality. The refreshing acidity is coupled with very fine integration and structure, making for perhaps the perfect rosé of the summer. Enjoy with everything from barbecue chicken to the finest of French cheeses.

This Fantastic blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Tibouren is one of the best selling Rosé from Provence! As the price for lesser quality Rosés rise, this one holds steady. With a delicate nose of spice, floral and stone fruit, this elegant and soft palate reminds you why we love Côtes de Provence Rosé soooo much! This is a must with simple grilled fish, fresh fruit, and cheeses. Grab this one bottle for any summertime affair.
