This is such an elegant rose that is more similar to a white Burgundy. One of the most stylish, elegant roses the wine world has to offer.

From 8-year-old Grenache vines. Seems the palest and most orange of the 28s. Slightly more savoury and more obviously garrigue-influenced than Les Clans. Lovely creamy texture and a little bit of lemon cream on the finish. Reminds me of a white burgundy in some ways. Very persistent. 18/2 Jancis Robinson, www.jancisrobinson.com
This is a very unusual top quality rose from the South of France. It is made from a blend of local grapes, and it is aged in oak barrels. It is a delicate salmon pink and has complex flavours of red berries and a savoury creaminess.
