Domaine Houchart Sainte Victoire Rosé 2019
|France, Provence, Côtes de Provence
Lurid pink. Orange zest, redcurrant and pungent flowers on the perfumed nose. Ripe red berry, citrus fruit and succulent herb flavors show good depth and are supported by a spine of juicy acidity. Deepens slowly on the back half and finishes long and chewy, with building florality and a refreshing touch of bitter blood orange.
The domaine's Sainte-Victoire vineyards have given a dense wine, rich in bold red fruits and pepper flavors. This powerful rosé is made for food rather than as an aperitif.
Blood orange and candied watermelon notes are matched to floral, heather and white cherry elements in this glossy, plump rosé. Spicy finish. Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet. Drink now.
