Wine Review: Balsam fir and waffle batter aromas spring from the glass on this delightful Grenache-driven Rose. Flavors include cantaloupe, gooseberry and white currant with hints of chamomile and jasmine tea. There is an insistent spice note that extends an already agreeable finish. This wine shows tremendous versatility and no need to wait until the summer months to enjoy. Consider pairing with spicy grilled shrimp skewers or cold orzo salad with feta cheese and black olives. – Jeoff

Winemaker Notes: CLEM Rose is a limited-release Cotes de Provence Rose. Thanks to a bright and dry September that produced stellar conditions for ripening the grapes, the 2018 vintage is fruity, fresh and balanced. Under a pale robe with salmon highlights, the nose reveals complex notes of guava, white flowers and a hint of brioche. The fresh and crunchy palate on the attack is prolonged with a certain fullness and persistent fruitiness. Pair with aperitifs and fresh salads.
