Next up this month we have the delightful Chateau Montaud Cotes de Provence. This 2011 rose cost $10 and comes in a beautiful bottle typical of rose from the region.
The wine is made from Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. The nose is lightly floral with soft berry notes the palate is smooth with bright strawberry and cherry flavors. This is a dry rose and despite its fruit flavors it is not at all sweet. But that is ok because sweetness is not what a real rose is all about, right? I enjoyed this wine very much and would highly recommend it. Looks like we’re two for two on rose month, huzzah! Check it out and let me know what you think. Until next week, salute!
