2015 Château de L'Aumerade "Cuvée Marie-Christine" Côtes de Provence Rosé

SKU #1261928 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The light pink colored 2015 Cotes de Provence Rose Cuvee Marie Christine is fabulous. Silky, layered and seamless, with notes of orange blossom, caramelized cherries, salty seawater and distinct minerality, it's impeccably balanced, has perfectly integrated acidity and a great finish. Impressive and Bravo! (JD)  (5/2016)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

 From a 1,350-acre family estate divided among five chateaus, this crisp wine is packed with red fruits cut with citrus acidity. Refreshing and mineral textured, it will make a fine apéritif. (RV)  (7/2016)

Vinous

 Light, bright pink. Musky red berries and orange pith on the deeply perfumed nose. Fleshy and smooth on the palate, offering ripe citrus fruit and red berry flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Finishes warm and smooth, displaying a refreshingly bitter edge and good persistence.  (6/2016)

A Provence rosé at this price?! This is just silly. Wonderful aromas of orange zest, white cherries, and flowers which continue on the palate with strawberry and raspberry notes. This wine is balanced out with that distinct Côtes de Provence minerality and fresh, medium-plus acidity. Definitely a rosé to stock up on to enjoy anytime!

Right away the nose smells of spun sugar with a slight sent of vanilla bean. The first sip has beautiful honeysuckle and bright strawberry and pear flavors followed with light saline. The flavors evolve as you drink (if your glass stays filled long enough). This shows great mineral smoothness with a bright long finish. A great bargain and a great wine for the summer months… Enjoy!

So beautifully delicate as soon as it pours into the glass, just a blush of light pink, leading to a nose of lifted white flowers, Bing cherry and orange blossom. A touch of weight on the palate, wild raspberry and white peaches are buoyed up with zippy, fresh acidity. Happily tried this before I knew how much it cost, SO pleasantly surprised when I saw the tiny price tag! This will help wash down many a late summer evening in our house!

L'Aumerade is that ideal rose with its pure clarity of focus, tension and mineral tones. Light aromas of strawberries, white peaches and citrus rind perfume the wine with a hint of white flowers. An excellent example and worth buying by the case for your warm weather needs.

A fantastic Rose for the price, the Chateau de L'Aumerade has a beautiful nose of white raspberry, cut flowers and cotton candy. On the palate there's notes of fresh strawberries, raspberries and cherries that flow thru to the soft, lush finish. A great wine at $10.99, an even better deal when you realize it is a Provence Rose for that price!!
Top Value! Drink from 2016 to 2017

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Provence

- Provence encompasses the southeastern portion of France that borders the Mediterranean. The largest appellation in the region is the Cotes de Provence that spans 49,600 acres of land in and around Marseilles. Thirteen different varietals are grown in this appellation with the most important grapes being Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, and Mouvedre. While much of the production is dry rose, there are many more serious wines being made from the area. Some of the most important smaller appellations within Provence include Bandol, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, and Coteaux Varois.
