Charles Thomas Cotes du Rhone Rose
Charles Thomas
France - Rhone Valley - Cotes du Rhone AOC

Very charming pale rose color. The wine displays lots of fresh fruit aromas such as strawberry and watermelon. The palate is focused and very well balanced with again some strawberry and ripe red fruit notes. The finish is quite pleasing and long with a little spiciness and freshness to it.

wa"A 70-30 blend of Grenache and Syrah, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Rose is a bright flamingo in color. Hints of crushed stone and lime mark the nose, while the plump, medium-bodied palate shows more peach and cherry notes. It's a solid value in a hot category. - Joe Czerwinski"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Made from close to equal amounts Syrah and Grenache, the 2017 Côtes du Rhône Rosé offers charming notes of strawberries, orange blossom, and spice. Medium-bodied, juicy and elegant on the palate, it strikes a good balance between richness and freshness and is a good effort."

vinous logo"Pale orange. Strawberry, candied orange and a suggestion of honeysuckle on the fragrant nose. Juicy red fruit flavors show good depth and focus and no rough edges. A spicy nuance appears on the finish, which hangs on with good fruity persistence."
