Golden drops from Provence - 88p
Provence is the capital of rosé wine. The growing conditions for this spring-summer style wine is just perfect in this area. Not red, not white, but rosé. And they do it with such perfection that it just makes you smile, sipping a glass.
Domaine Clos Sainte Magdeleine is quite new to the rosé game, in fact this is only their second vintage of this Côtes-de-Provence pale pink gold.The vineyards sits beautifully facing the coast between Cassis and Bandol, making for optimal growing conditions. Grapes for this bottle is a blend of Mourvèdre 20%, Grenache 35%, Syrah 10%, Cinsault 35%.
Unlike most rosé wines, this will be cool to put in your cellar for a couple of years, but it also drinks perfectly now :)
