This is a rosé similar in style to those plump delights from Tavel though distinctly its own - with a bit of bite and crunch, the typical woodsy/cedar-like aromatics balanced with pepper and bramble before a pillowy palate laden with blackberry and plum. One of our staff's all-time favorites. From Les Frères Soulier who tend 8 hectares of vines in St. Hilaire-d'Ozilhan, Gard, France.
