Domaine du Grand Cros, Le Grand Cros – L’Esprit de Provence, Côtes de Provence

A crisp and mineral Provence rosé from Berry Bros & Rudd

If Provence rosés are generally Dickie Greenleaf, this one is more Tom Ripley - externally conventional yet darker, edgier and more complex beneath it.

Domaine du Grand Cros, Le Grand Cros – L’Esprit de Provence, Côtes de Provence, 2018 (£15.50 Berry Bros & Rudd) bright and crisp with wild strawberries, pink grapefruit, redcurrant and verbena; floral with white pepper and minerality; focused and precise

Thoroughly enjoyable, in a slightly subversive way.

Drink as an aperitif, or match with salads, seafood pasta or pea, courgette and artichoke risotto.
