This is the third release of the rosé produced by Mathilde Chapoutier, whose father, Michel, runs the famed Hermitage-based M. Chapoutier. It is a light-colored wine, a typical Provence blend with the addition of Cabernet Sauvignon. Fruity and with great acidity, it is light in texture, just hinting at minerality. Drink now.
