Charismatic and blushing pale pink, it appears well within the classic Provence “pale and dry” spectrum. The nose is gloriously aromatic and sweetly perfumed with aromas of strawberries and rose petals. The palate is a seamless revelation, elegant and effortless with light berry and candied fruit drop flavours lingering long on a soft, dry finish.
"Syrah rosé from the mighty Aude Valley. Carcassonne is a lovely place, and who doesn’t love a hearty cassoulet in winter, aside vegetarians, of course. Damn, it’s cold today too, I think I may have to make one. Oh, and the label looks like it’s been run off on a photocopier, homespun, though I’d be pretty sure that’s intentional. Redcurrant, some citrus zest, flowers, strawberries. It’s fresh, subtle sweetness, a little chalky texture and a wee bit of funk, fresh, flavoursome, good length, and all round tasty drinking. It’s not from Provence, so you save a few dollars as a result. Anyway, I like it
