"A blend of 50% Cinsault, 40% Grenache and 10% Syrah, the 2018 Ventoux Rose Terrasses is another fine vintage for this cuvée. Dried spices, watermelon rind and strawberries mingle easily on the nose, while the medium-bodied palate delivers mixed berry and citrus flavors aboard a silky texture. It's fully dry on the finish, with a hint of bitterness. 90 points." (Joe Czerwinski, www.robertparker.com, July 2019)
“Its light pink colour is followed by a terrific array of wild strawberry and peach fruits intermixed with complex notes of sappy herbs and pine forest-like characteristics. Clean, crisp, medium-bodied, and with a dry, lengthy finish, it’s terrific rose that’s going to shine on the dinner table over the coming summer months.
