For a winemaker who almost considered being a professional shooter, 25-year-old Mathilde Chapoutier clearly has good aim. Lots of Provençal rosé can be bland and boring, though usually refreshing on a sweltering day. But this one has all the refreshing, light qualities you’re looking for in summer, while still bringing some interesting fruit and minerality.
A mix of Grenache noir, Cinsault, Syrah, and Rolle, the wine gives off great white peach and very light strawberry mixed with a touch of slatey minerality. Looking for a go-to summer rosé? This could be it.
