Elegant, seamless, and beautifully balanced, it doesn't have the power of the top cuvée yet has integrated acidity and a great finish. Rosé doesn’t get much better."
JAMES SUCKLING 90 POINTS - "A rather rich style here with raspberry and crunchy red-berry aromas and flavors on offer. From organically grown grapes. Drink now."
- Item #: i_350025Bottle Size: 750mlProducing wines since Roman times, today the estate is owned by the Roozen family, who are continually striving to produce delicious wine, whilst protecting their environment. A beautiful estate of 400 hectares, the 186 hectares of vineyard spread over the hills at altitudes ranging from 280m to 499m, the site of the famous plot ‘Les Griottes’. If you are in Provence do visit this beautiful estate, admire the wonderful gardens, and try its splendid wines! Château Val Joanis rosé is a lively, fresh and aromatic wine with notes of red berries and citrus fruit.
- Item #: i_353292Bottle Size: 750mlThe inimitable, prolific Yves Cuilleron makes a few thousand cases of this saignée Rosé, all Syrah from his hometown of Chavanay (which is the southern end of Condrieu in the Northern Rhone Valley.) The wine’s prettiness and relative delicacy doesn’t make me think saignée. Get the raspberries, strawberries and cherries along with a lime-y citrus and, naturally, cracked black pepper. It’s very dry and easy to like, especially on the finish when an earnest berry flavor kicks in. I poured this wine at the Yves Cuilleron tasting I led. It won the room over – all 20 of us. The value here speaks for itself.
