Château-Gassier Esprit Gassier Rosé 2017
|Region||France, Provence, Côtes de Provence|
Wine EnthusiastThis is an intense, structured wine with great acidity as well as swathes of red fruits. A rich wine dominated by peppery Grenache, it also has a pure, red-currant flavor. The acidity is tight and refreshing. The wine will be better with food. Drink now.
Wine SpectatorBright, with a sleek feel to the mix of white cherry, peach and savory notes. Racy minerality carries the finish. This has a bit more length and cut than most of its peers. Drink now. 33,500 cases made.
Wine AdvocateUnabashedly fruit-driven, the 2017 Cotes de Provence Rose Esprit Gassier boasts big aromas of melon, peach and lime. It's a light to medium-bodied blend of 35% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 25% Syrah and 10% Rolle that tightens up slightly on the finish to end on a lingering citrusy note.
