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