Climate
The 2020 vintage began with a mild and dry winter leading to an early budding. The beginning of spring was marked by three successive white frosts which affected the future harvest. The vines then took full advantage of the generous rains up until a very hot summer arrived. The drought conditions put a lot of stress on the vines putting further pressure future yields. Fortunately, the rains at the start of the harvest allowed the vines to regain their balance and the grapes to reach their full maturity.

Grape Varieties
Cinsault, grenache.

Tasting Notes
Peach colour and slightly salmony highlights. Fresh and subtle nose that expresses aromas of berries and yellow peach. The fresh and fruity mouth gives way to a slight mineral finish.

Meal Suggestion
Salads, grilled fish or chicken, ceviche

Guide Hachette - 2017
Pale luminous pink, this rosé associates a nose of white flowers, red fruits and grapefruit to a fully round mouth. Perfect for appetizer and summer salads.

The Wine Front - Australia - 89 points - 2017 - Mike Bennie - Vintage 2016
Younger generation winemaker from Provence with this friendly, come-hither rose brand. Even the name ‘Jules’ draws a small smile, in the context of a rose (for no reason other than it is friendly in my mind). It’s merlot and carignan in alliance in this wine. Righteous, simple, gluggable Provence rose of high vitality and refreshment factor. Rose petal, watermelon juice, light red berry fruit sweetness – the bouquet is appealing as. Tangy and fresh to taste, bright and crisp in nature. A light buzz of sweet, berry fruitiness jostles with electric, gently saline acidity. Pleasing as can be. No brainer for good times drinking.

The Telegraph - 2009 - Susy Atkins
Well-priced southern French rosé, with a succulent, juicy note and subtle hint of spice. Try it with tomato couscous
