Out of stock
Jean Marie Guffens has sometimes been called a genius white wine maker having received the exclusive 3 star ranking in Le Classement. France ‘s most respected wine publication an honour only achieved by 56 domains out of 1300!
He now seems driven to achieve the same reputation for his Provençal. southern french rosé. The Vaucluse rosé is Guffens ™ homage to the classic pale. mineral inflected style most associated with the hillside vineyards up in the Côteaux d ™Aix en Provence and Côtes de Provence. The 2012 blend is 70 per cent Syrah and 30 per cent Grenache aged in stainless steel tanks on lees for five months. A must try for those in the market for cracking value. dry Provençal rosé. It has a wickedly sexy. pulpy mid palate texture. thanks to the exclusive use of free run juice. but the finish is crunchy dry and super savoury. You are left with a wildly floral and fresh herb scented perfume in your mouth that demands another sip. The light colour belies the intensity of this wine but does hint at its remarkable seductiveness. Are we excited? Yes we are! Wines that deliver such pure yumminess for low dollars are like manna from heaven as far as we are concerned.
