Chateau Riotor Côtes de Provence Rosé 2016

“Pale, bright pink. Lively and sharply focused on the nose, showing zesty red berry and blood orange aromas and an intense floral quality. Tight, mineral driven strawberry and redcurrant flavours display a refreshingly bitter edge and put on weight with air. This dry, nervy rosé finishes with excellent clarity and stony persistence. Textbook Provencal rosé.” Steven Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar.
