    "Assertive, with a distinct savory streak through the middle of the white cherry and white peach core. Keeps good energy through the finish. "

    "Shimmering orange-pink. Fresh red berries, nectartine, orange zest and a spicy nuance on the mineral-accented nose. Focused and lively on the palata, offering red berry, pit fruit and kumquat flavors that slowly deepen and take on a floral accent with air. Shows very good energy and mineral cut on the persistent finish, which leaves lavendar and pit fruit notes behind."

    "Orange blossom, strawberries, and some floral notes all emerge from Mathilde’s 2020 Côtes De Provence Grand Ferrage Rosé, a medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, crisp, yet still nicely textured rosé. Based on Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, and Rolle, drink up."
