2015 Domaine la Chapelle Saint-Victor Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rosé

SKU #1252855 Vinous

 Pale pink. Bright and lively on the nose and palate, displaying fresh blood orange and red currant qualities and a suggestion of white pepper. Dry and nervy in character, offering firm closing bite and a subtle touch of candied flowers. (JR)  (6/2016)

Wine Enthusiast

 Pale salmon-grey in color, this is perfumed, soft and generously ripe. It is well balanced between the light acidity and the rounded strawberry flavors, and the aftertaste brings in a crisper element. (RV)  (7/2016)

Wine Spectator

 Very fresh, with a racy edge to the blood orange, white cherry and savory notes. (JM)  (8/2016)

So fresh, juicy, and balanced, this gorgeous Provence Rose is one of our favorites, especially for the price. Very fresh fruit flavors (strawberry, blood orange) are framed by clean minerality and a racy acidic edge that keeps it lively and quenching, perfect for sipping under a hot sun on the patio.

One of the most pleasing ros├ęs of the entire season, the La Chapelle Saint Victor is at once expressive and beautifully balanced. Full of strawberry and ruby grapefruit aromas, a taste of fresh cut melon rounds out the flavors. Just explodes from the glass and says "Drink Me! Drink lots of ME!!"

Provence

- Provence encompasses the southeastern portion of France that borders the Mediterranean.
