2017 Marrenon "Roséfine" Luberon Rosé (Previously $12)

SKU #1372567 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A blend of 75% Syrah and 25% Grenache, the 2017 Luberon Rose Rosefine slots in qualitatively between Marrenon's Classique and Petula bottlings. Hints of peach, cantaloupe and strawberries appear on the nose, while the medium-bodied palate picks up citrusy notes that linger on the finish. (JC)  (6/2018)

Wine Enthusiast

 Pristine wild strawberry and watermelon notes introduce this penetrating, Syrah-dominated rosé. Full bodied and dry, it offers succulent raspberry flavors accented by fresh herb and violet hints. Bright acidity freshens the moderately long finish. *Best Buy* (AI)  (7/2018)

Wine Spectator

 Fresh and direct, with light white cherry and strawberry core notes mixed with wet stone and watermelon rind hints. (JM)  (6/2018)

Given that the time and place for drinking rosés has little to do with the calendar anymore, but rather the availability— just look around the store, they’re still there in abundance— it comes down to a matter of choice, and the dictates of style, price and desire. For those seeking a mouthwatering, flavorful rosé with luscious orchard fruit notes— strawberry, melon and white peach, balanced by a note of minerality and a fresh, satisfying finish, look to this Syrah-driven version from the Luberon. With any luck this one will last through the holidays, as it whispers ‘festivity’ with each sip!

Additional Information:

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:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
