"There's lots of bright citrusy accents to the crunchy green apple flavors. The minerally finish is crisp, pure and intense. Drink now. 28,215 cases made. " (WS)

"($16) Pale salmon skin color. Mineral-accented aromas of red berries and tangerine, with a spicy overtone. Dry, focused and brisk, offering tangy strawberry and blood orange flavors and a bracing jolt of dusty minerals. Closes racy and long, with resonating minerality and a hint of candied red berries." (IWC)

Winery Notes:
Bargemone is among the foremost estates of the Coteaux d’Aix appellation of Provence. A benchmark producer of the delicious, dry rosé for which Provence is famous, the Commanderie was founded by Templar knights in the13th century, and is home to a proud viticultural tradition and more than 160 acres of sustainably grown vineyards.

Tasting Notes:
Offers classic aromas of wild strawberries and red currants, with a light, floral character and a crisp, bone-dry palate.

Serve With:
This begs for seafood but has enough stuffing to accompany pizza or ratatouille.

36% Grenache, 21% Cinsault, 20% Syrah, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Carignan, 3% Ugni Blanc.
