Rosé wine values tasted in 2006

The selected vibrant bottlings have given me much pleasure for the price. I have purchased them again for personal consumption. This page skips the tasting notes of the wines that are not imported into the USA. The complete page of French wine values can be found here.

The below wines were tasted in France, in 2006 (between April and December). The tasting notes are listed by increasing prices, with the following format:

Appellation - producer - plot or brand - variety
Vintage - approximate price - general impression - on nose - on palate - after swallowing

Vin de pays des maures - Domaine Turenne - Aubrégades - [Cinsault 90%]

2005 - 4 € - a scent of peach skin - dense, mouth-watering, alcohol shows much, fresh

Vin de pays du Var - Patrick Mourlan - Bastide des Oliviers - (rosé)

2005 - 4 € - not much manipulated (much less so than Pique-Roque) - not much scent - round, strawberry, dense, much alcohol, fresh

Vin de table - Le Mazel - Pétillant rosé - Carignan

[2004] - 4 € - not much showing on the nose - pink grapefruit, few mid-sized bubbles, very sweet, fresh, a note of brewer's yeast (slightly acidic and bitter)

Vin de pays des maures - Pique-Roque

2005 - 4 € - out of the present pick of blush wines, Pique-Roque is the only one that is not organic, it is our standard representative of the Provence rosé wines, complete with flower and apparent winemaking - the nose is dominated by flower - the wide mouth presence shows neither fat nor the fudge note of some Provence rosés, instead it shows flower and freshness

Côtes-de-provence wine labelCôtes de provence - Domaine Turenne - Camille - [Cinsault 80%]

2005 - 5 € - the grape expresses itself finely thanks to a supportive winemaking (as opposed to obtrusive) - dust, carambola (star fruit) - no flower, a lot of fruit (carambola, a hint of redcurrant), much alcohol (wide), fresh

Coteaux varois - Patrick Mourlan - Bastide des Oliviers - (rosé)

2005 - 7 € - very pure - the palate shows nectarine, density, tiny gas beads, and freshness
