2020 Costieres de Nimes Rose, Chateau de Fabregues, Rhone Valley, France
Few wines are packaged in such an elegant and striking bottle, yet there is far more to this wine than looks alone. The innovative glass stopper makes it easy to get into, and then you are greeted with a wealth of floral and stone fruit aromas. It has a little more weight than some of its neighbouring roses in Provence, and it has the depth of fruit to match. Stone fruits dominate, with a hint of strawberry in the background. This is a year-round rose to enjoy with tastes of the Mediterranean, and the weather too if we get some!
