Winemaker Notes

A pretty pale pink with violet glints. The nose is intense with notes of grapefruit, pear and red fruits: cherry and raspberry. A nice crisp mouth; round and full bodied, with a nice balance and a velvety feel. The finish is long with hints of peach and red fruit.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The 2010 Rose, which ordinarily could be expected to be starting to age slightly, is actually holding on brilliantly and showing no signs of degradation. The wine is still ripe, full-bodied, very long, with lots of kirsch, strawberry, and raspberry fruit, some loamy soil undertones and a wonderfully perfumed, flowery, garrigue-based nose. It is a classic Provencal rose.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

(a blend of grenache, grenache blanc, cinsault, syrah, mourvedre, carignan, clairette and bourboulenc): Dark pink. High-pitched aromas of redcurrant and strawberry, with notes of rhubarb and dried flowers adding complexity. Spicy and focused on the palate, offering deep red berry flavors and a note of bitter cherry. The persistent, cherry-accented finish is dry and nervy. I really like this wine's blend of power and vivacity.

Wine Spectator

Superfresh, with lots of tangy cherry, cherry pit and watermelon notes and a long, stone-tinged finish. Very tasty.

Prieure de Montezargues, Tavel, France - Rhone
Prieure de Montezargues
Near Tavel, concealed by a forest of Holm oaks and Scots pine, and protected from the Mistral by the Montagne Noire ("Black Mountain"), Montezargues Priory quietly ripens its grapes on sandy slopes that run down to Pujaut Pond.

Eight varieties flourish in the Provencal sunshine: Grenache Noir and Grenache Blanc, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Clairette and Bourboulenc.
