Luc Sorin, from Chablis, arrived in Provence in 1995, buying vines in Bandol and Côtes de Provence. He seems to have kept a northern freshness in this rosé, a crisp, pink grapefruit and cranberry juice flavored wine, with great, refreshing acidity.
More complex and richly textured than most Provençal rosés, this wine is a treat, from its mineral-laden, smoky aromas to its ripe cherry-berry flavors and layered finish. Drink now, although it has enough stuffing to suggest it might last longer than just a single summer.
Darker in color than many Provence rosés, this caramel-flavored wine has a fine line in ripe berry fruits to go with the smooth, velvet texture. Dry in style, its firm texture is right for food.
