Domaine Le Pive Gris Rose
2018 Domaine Le Pive Gris Rose...$11.98
30% Grenache Gris, 30% Grenache Noir, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc.
Pretty strawberry and raspberry fruits emerge from the 2018 Igp Camargue Sable De Camargue Rosé, which is lightly/ textured, fresh, crisp on the finish. It’s a terrific, value rosé from the sandy soils of the Camargue that has plenty to love.
Rated 88/100 Jeb Dunnuck
Nestled in the wilderness of the Camargue national park, Domaine le Pive is comprised of 113+ acres of organically farmed vines, with a modern, state of the art winery and historic Romanesque chapel at its center.
The plentiful sun, marine winds and distinctive sandy soils (“sables sauvages”) result in fresh, aromatic, personality-filled wines.
Tasting Notes: Offers aromas of pineapple, mango, white peach, and pear. Dry, crisp, and refreshing on the palate, with a long, lingering finish.
Serve With: Will provide immense enjoyment on its own, and pair well with a wide range of lighter fare.
