Costières de Nimes Galets Rosé

2019
France
Rhône

50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre. From vineyards blanketed in galets, the smooth round stones of Châteauneuf-du-Pape fame, comes a vivacious, garnet-colored rosé with bright red fruit notes. Galets Rosé gets a few hours maceration, 8 hours for Grenache and 2 for Syrah giving the wine a darker color than the Fleur d'Eglantine cuvee and a bit more spice and structure.

90 points
"Light, brilliant orange. Powerful red berry, blood orange and floral qualities on the nose, along with building spiciness. Juicy and round in the mouth, offering lively citrus fruit and red berry flavors and a sweetening nectarine flourish. Shows very good energy on the seamless finish, which features a lingering raspberry note. "
