2018 Cotes de Provence Rose, Henri Gaillard, Provence, France
This is a delightfully clean, fresh and invigorating rose, great for al fresco dining, and also a delicious accompaniment to fish dishes and southern French cuising the year round. It has that delightful delicate pink colour that Provence Rose is famed for, and the floral and summer berry aromas just add further enticement. The palate is fresh and dominated with vibrant summer berries with a hint of stone fruit in the background. This really is classic Provence Rose, but at a price point below many of its competitors.
