jeb dunnuck logo 250A blend of 80% Grenache and 10% each of Cinsault and Carignan, the 2017 Corbières Vin-Gris Rosé offers classic notes of dried strawberries, spice, and orange blossom as well as a medium-bodied, balanced, thoroughly enjoyable style on the palate. It has good acidity but is a richer, classic Corbières styled rosé. Drink it over the coming summer months."

It’s impeccably made and offers clean, classy notes of ripe cherries, framboise and flowers in a medium-bodied, nicely textured, yet also fresh package. It’s a joy to drink.- Jeb Dunnuck"

wine enthusiast 88 pts"This Grenache-dominant rosé, with 10% Carignan and 10% Cinsault, opens with delicate notes of just-ripe peach, white flowers and garrigue herbs. Lightweight and dainty, the clean, bright palate offers similarly subtle flavors of peach and melon. It's balanced and refreshing, and best enjoyed now. - Lauren Buzzeo"

tanzer iwc 89 pts"(made from 80% grenache, 10% carignan and 10% cinsault): Pale orange. Vibrant citrus zest, red berry and floral aromas show good clarity and pick up a floral nuance with air. Fresh strawberry and bitter rhubarb flavors put on weight with air while maintaining vivacity and focus. Tangy acidity gives lift and cut to the finish, which leaves a refreshingly bitter berry skin note behind. - Josh Raynolds"
