Chateau Sainte Roseline Prestige Rose 2019
Sainte Roseline is one of only 18 “Grand Cru” estates in Provence and is the only Cru Classé in the Les Arcs region, about 25 minutes from Saint-Tropez. Prestige is a blend of 50% Cinsault, 40% Grenache, 10% Syrah, farmed organically. Underground natural springs bring a natural freshness, acidity, and minerality. On the palate, layers of ripe red berries are complemented by hints of flowers and herbs.
WA88: A négociant bottling, not estate, the 2019 Roseline Prestige Cotes de Provence Rose is a bit neutral, but it shows more with air, developing hints of strawberries and melon to go along with the initial scents of citrus and crushed stone. Medium-bodied on the palate, it's stony and refreshingly zesty on the finish, a big step up in quality from last year.
