2015 Chateau Gassier "Esprit Gassier" Côtes de Provence Rosé

SKU #1262810 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Giving up lots of white cherry, underbrush and spring flower notes, the light pink colored 2015 Cotes de Provence Esprit Gassier Rose is medium-bodied, nicely balanced and has good acidity that comes through on the finish. It's another high quality rose from this estate that's well worth drinking. (JD)  (5/2016)

Wine Enthusiast

 Produced in vineyards close to Mont Saint-Victoire in the west of the Provence vineyards, this perfumed, floral wine has crisp acidity along with orange and citrus flavors. The wine is light, very fruity and bright at the end. (RV)  (5/2016)

Wine Spectator

 Fresh and focused, with white cherry and watermelon rind notes backed by a tangy mineral hint on the finish. (Web-2016) (JM)

France

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.

Provence

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

Thirteen different varietals are grown in this appellation with the most important grapes being Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, and Mouvedre.
