Bernard Magrez L'Excellence Des Muraires Cotes de Provence Rosé 2017
|Region||France, Provence, Côtes de Provence|
This elegant, pale-colored rosé is one of three wines made by Bordeaux chateau owner Bernard Magrez. It reflects a soft, full style, ripe with red-berry fruits and just the right amount of acidity. The pepper of the Grenache has been tamed leaving a fruity aftertaste. Drink now.
Aged part in demi-muids and part in concrete, the 2017 Cotes de Provence Rose L'Excellence des Muraires is a white-heavy rosé, with Rolle making up 36% of the blend. The rest is 33% Grenache, 21% Cinsault and 10% Syrah. It's plumper and rounder than most Provence rosés, with aromas and flavors of ripe citrus, currant and melon, with hints of licorice on the long finish.
A fresh, mineral-edged version, with a light savory streak amidst the peach and rose water notes. Drink now.
