This wine is clear and pale salmon in color.
The nose is clean with a pronounced intensity of aromas. Aromas consist of raspberry, strawberry, melon, banana and a steel like note. This wine is youthful.
This wine is dry with high acidity and medium (-) body. The flavor profile is pronounced and consists of citrus and melon notes followed by that subtle banana/tropical note. This has a medium length finish with some mineral.
This Côtes de Provence Rosé 2017 had balance, complexity and intensity, however I found the finish to be a bit short. This is a very good wine (at a great price point) that is made to drink now and not suitable for aging.
