Rosé off the Map

Meaty, briary, grassy nose, thick with peat and salt air, it churns with both spritely vigor and massive strawberry rhubarb fruit, round and full, voluptuous matchhead laying down a solid streak of terroir throughout.

What a difference after drinking Paso rosé today! course, I’m drinking this at 57°F and a wine of this structure comes off more like Chablis than what people typically dismiss as “merely rosé”.

In the mouth, rich and more roundness, massive green nectarine and elderberry retreat from the acid delicately etching every cellar-floor crevice with Meyer lemon zest. This wine is a work of ART, taking the already-great Cotes de Provence rosé expectation to ridiculously high realizations.
