"Medium reddish pink. Offering a rich, ripe nose and a round ripe palate, the Les Villots rosé is soft and fruit forward with red berry and cherry aromas and flavors. There’s medium acidity, but there’s less vibrancy here than in prior vintages of this wine. Still, very pleasant and easy drinking."

"Light salmon pink. Rose petals and the essence of red berries on the nose. Perfumed on a mineral-laden yet creamy palate with flavors of red berries and pomegranate. Superbly balanced and consistently delicious year after year."

"Light orange. Fresh raspberry, redcurrant and a subtle touch of jasmine on the incisive nose. Juicy raspberry and blood orange flavors become more minerally with air, offering an enticing combination of power and finesse. The mineral element drives the penetrating, long finish. - Josh Raynolds"

"Firm and nervy, this radiates coolness, from the feel of its acidity to its crunchy sour cherry fruit. It's clean and precise, held firm by the limestone notes that run under the fruit. A terrific pour for a beet and goat cheese salad."

"Medium pink rose. This is just what one wants in a rosé--perfect balance, freshness, bright acidity, and great purity of dried cherry, finishing long and rich. Mostly (90%) direct pressed Pinot Noir, 10% bled."

"This 100% Pinot Noir rose from Sancerre is a consistent winner. The 2012 exhibits wonderful aromas of bay leaf, spring flowers, pomegranate, sweet cherries and underlying earthiness as well as minerality. This forward, delicate, light-colored rose should provide plenty of pleasure over the next year."
