Chateau d'Astros Côtes de Provence Rosé 2014


This is a typical Côtes de Provence rosé from Chateau d'Astros from the south of France. It's a blend of cabernet sauvignon, cinsault, grenache and syrah, and has been pressed after a short maceration on skins in terms of winemaking. In the glass, it has saline and lightly herbal aromatics. The palate is medium bodied, light of touch and savoury in impression. Rating: Good. Abv: N/A. Price: ~$20 (in half dozen). Source: Sample.
