Ratings & Reviews91 Points - Vinous Media:
"Brilliant orange-pink. Ripe red berries, orange pith and pungent flowers on the deeply perfumed nose. Juicy raspberry, tangerine, peach and lavender flavors are sharpened and given a spicy edge by a hint of white pepper. Shows very good energy and solid thrust on a very long, supple finish that echoes the red fruit and floral qualities." - Josh Raynolds (Jun 2018)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A blend of 40% Cinsault, 40% Syrah and 20% Grenache, the 2017 Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rose La Dame de Rouet is a pale flamingo rosé that features bubble gum-like confected aromas but also hints of cantaloupe and peach. It's light to medium-bodied, with a silky texture and lingering finish." - Joe Czerwinski (Jun 2018)
