Tasting advices

Tasting notes
Pretty pale pink color with pastel undertones. The nose is seductive with subtle hints of red fruit (currants, strawberries, raspberries) and delicate flowers (rose, hawthorn). Well balanced in the mouth, between freshness and roundness, it offers a refreshing lemony finish.
Serving tips
10-12°C on hors-d'oeuvres, cold buffets, tomato salads, grilled meat, ... and other summer lunches.

Reviews and Awards

"This is the rosé sibling to the La Vieille Ferme white and it is equally impressive with totally relaxed fruit and a gloriously unhurried palate.If you want to mellow with a glass of destressing wine, then this is it."
-
"Un rosé, ici, qui se démarque par son fruité et sa fraîcheur. C’est simple, gouleyant et des plus efficace avec les saucisses grillées."
-
"Elaboré par la famille Perrin (Beaucastel), cette cuvée est une valeur sûre pour se rafraîchir et partir sur les routes vallonnées du Luberon. Une ode à la Provence, avec des notes épicées, un beau fruit et une fraîcheur qui tend l'ensemble."
