Roquemartin Cotes de Provence

By | May 26, 2007

I’m clearly on a cheesy 1970’s bottle trip at the moment, as I had a Roquemartin Cotes de Provence 2005 Rose this weekend in a curious Lollobrigida style bottle. It was a medium orangey pink with an aroma of strawberries and cream which felt distinctly summery.

It’s dry and light bodies, and the strawberry flavour carries through, along with a little orange peel. It’s very much a product of Provence, made from a hodge-podge of grape varieties and at 12% alcohol it’s perfect for a picnic except it doesn’t come with a screw cap.

Pay less than a fiver for an instant reminder of holidays in the South of France.
