2016 Chateau Gassier "Esprit Gassier" Côtes de Provence Rosé

SKU #1303485 90 points Vinous

 Light bright orange-pink. Aromas of pungent red berries, cherry and blood orange; a minerally element adds vivacity. Sappy and seamless in texture, offering spice-tinged raspberry, tangerine and candied rose flavors that deepen and spread out with air. Smoothly plays richness off vivacity and finishes long and focused, displaying a subtle mineral quality and a hint of candied orange zest. Drink 2017 - 2020. (JR)  (6/2017)

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

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.
