Chateau Riotor Rose 2016
A Bottle and Glass staple. We can't recommend this enough for summer entertaining.
Made from a blend of 40% Grenache, 50% Cinsault, 7% Syrah and 3% Vermentino. This beautifully perfumed dry rosé is from vineyards in the heart of the magnificent Massif des Maures mountains in Provence. Farmed and made by the owners of Chateau Mont-Redon from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, this wine benefits from the attention and know-how of generations of high quality winemaking. It's a pale salmon pink colour with intensely perfumed berry and provence herb aromas. Fresh red berries on the palate with a crisp, dry and refreshing finish. One taste and you'll understand why Provence rosé (and Riotor especially) is so popular!! Vintage and Vine.
“Light, bright orange. Red berries and tangerine on the perfumed nose and in the mouth. Juicy and focused, with hints of white pepper and bitter herbs emerging on the back half. Finishes chewy and taut, with a zesty mineral note adding lift and nervy cut.” Vinous Media, April 2015.
