Very harmonious, this is full of dried apricot, orange peel, nut and smoke flavors, but still elegant and light-weight.

Ripe blackberry, black cherry and currant flavors mix in this dry, creamy, very refined rosé.

GUY CHARLEMAGNE

Crisp, with a stony mineral undertow to notes of pippin apple, lemon zest, ginger and smoke. Lightly juicy and well-focused.

DUC DE ROME
