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

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

2005 - USD 11 - not much manipulated (much less so than Pique-Roque) - not much scent - round, strawberry, dense, much alcohol, fresh

blush Vin de pays des maures - Pique-Roque

2005 - USD 11 - 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

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

2005 - USD 15 - very pure - the palate shows nectarine, density, tiny gas beads, and freshness
