Chateau Mira Luna Rose 2016

Coteaux Varois, Provence, South of France, FranceLocated in the heart of Provence, the Coteaux Varois en Provence appellation includes 28 communes around the town of Brignoles, between the Sainte-Baume Mountain in the south and the Bessillons Mountains in the north. There are 2500ha of predominantly limestone soils set in a mountainous landscape where peaks rise from 600-1000m, offering many slopes and variation of terroir. This is a blend of bone-dry syrah and cinsault, lean and streamlined with salted scrubby herbs, wild raspberries, strawberries, and cherries. Acidity is pink grapefruit pithy and bright, and there is a wash of salts that liven the gently cushioned palate and linger on. Lovely savoury and charming rosé, equally serious and smashable.Tasted: 09 June 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 34.99 BCLS Producer: Chateau Mira LunaCSPC: 35389UPC: 3770002939314
