2016 Vignoble Dragon Côtes de Provence Rosé

SKU #1297580 Vinous

 Light bright orange. Pungent, spice-accented strawberry and orange zest aromas, along with a hint of succulent herbs. Dry and nervy on the palate, offering red berry, blood orange and bitter rhubarb flavors that unfold slowly on the back half. Closes chewy and tight, displaying firm, spicy bite and nice persistence. Drink 2017-2019. (JR)  (8/2017)

Wine Enthusiast

 This is so crisp and fruity. It is refreshing, lively and with fine acidity that lifts the wine so attractively. The red currants and lemons present an extra tang at the end. Drink now. (RV)  (7/2017)

Fresh, lively, summery. Aromas of cantaloupe, strawberry, orange zest, and a hint of celery. Bright, lifted acidity on the palate. Flavors of cantaloupe, strawberry preserves, and watermelon. Minerality comes through, along with a slight phenolic finish. Tasty and under $15; perfect for your next picnic or outdoor get-together

Um, it might be stating the obvious, but for ravenous fans of Game of Thrones and Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen aka Khaleesi or the Mother of Dragons, this lively, radiant rosé, with captivating flavors of strawberry, yellow peach, lemons and hibiscus might be just the right tinge to get you through this season's seven episodes, and even if “Winter is Coming”, you will still be celebrating all summer long with this lush, delicious little Dragon......
