2008 Commanderie de la Bargemone COTEAUX D'AIX EN PROVENCE ROSE (Provence, France)

An excellent rosé from this consistently very good Provençal winery.

Very light copper color with pinkish highlights. Terrifically fruity nose -- watermelon juice, fruit salad, undergirded with steely minerals. Mouthfilling, with a soft texture, but a tight flavor profile, featuring bone dry and very clean fruitiness. Long, stony/fruity finish, with good balancing acidity. Was refreshing and a great accompaniment to spicy Chinese take-out. 88. Imported by Hand Picked Selections (Dan Kravitz). Was $12 at Spec's on Smith.
