A lovely ultra-pale pink, almost watery colour, with a nose of redcurrant, strawberry, peach, wet stone and an unusual but very welcome hint of woodsmoke. The palate is delightfully fresh, fruity and rounded, with none of the pithy/zesty notes often found in rosés made by the saignée (free-run juice) method. Indeed, despite the pale colour, it has all the characteristics of a wine made by direct pressing of the grapes (after de-stemming) - i.e. what I call "proper" rosé!  It really is quite fleshy and textured, yet beautifully focused and tight, with plenty of acidity and a surprisingly long, gently spicy/peppery finish. A lovely wine in its own right, and more than a match for many an expensive Provence rosé.
