Tom Cannavan 'Rosé Roundup 2018' "A very attractive bottle for this wine, a lacey rose pattern screen printed in white over the pale pink/peach wines is very attractive. And so is the stuff inside: a blend of Provençal varieties, gently floral with small firm red berry fruits, good acidity and a long finish with pert acidity giving it a brisk and savoury appeal whilst still being fruit-forward." (2017 vintages)
Valerie Rousselle (The Winemaker) "This rosé is very typical of Provence. Perfect as an aperitif in summer and with Asian cuisine."
Chateau Roubine is located in the Provence region and is one of the oldest vineyards in France. The winery's exceptional wines are increasingly renowned internationally due to commitment to quality winemaking of the owner, Valerie Rousselle who owns several acclaimed vineyards in Provence.
