Château Riotor Cote de Provence Rosé 2016
"Had a blind tasting last year with over 40 roses at all price points. And not only was this(Riotor) the best in show, it was also the least expensive. Clean with the right amount of fruit matched with the right amount of acid. The type of rose that evaporates quickly.” Michael Madrigale, Head Sommelier, Bar Boulud and Boulud Sud, NYC
The 2016 vintage has produced possibly the best Riotor yet; perfumed, dry and mouthfilling as usual, but with an added dimension of vibrancy and length, a characteristic of 2016 all around France. Perhaps the secret to the success of the Riotor style is an uncommonly high 50% Cinsault, which brings perfume, finesse and delicacy to the blend.
Made from a blend of 40% Grenache, 50% Cinsault, 7% Syrah and 3% Vermentino. This beautifully perfumed dry rosé is from vineyards in the heart of the magnificent Massif des Maures mountains in Provence. Farmed and made by the owners of Chateau Mont-Redon from Chateauneuf-du-Pape this wine benefits from the attention and know-how of generations of high quality winemaking. It has a pale salmon pink colour, intensely perfumed berry and provence herb aromas. Fresh and intensely flavoured delicate red berries on the palate with a crisp, dry and refreshing finish. One taste and you will understand why Provence rose (and Riotor especially) is so popular !!

World Wine – “Pale pink. Strawberry, orange zest and white pepper aromas and flavors, joined by a subtle floral nuance in the glass. Minerally and taut in the mouth, loosening up with air and showing good energy. Finishes with good, stony lift and vivacity, leaving a red berry note behind.” Vinous Media June 2016
