Review: 2017 Cote Mas Rose Aurore IGP
This simple rose wine proudly boasts “33% more wine” via a sticker on the bottle, thanks to its enclosure in a 1 liter container. Surprisingly, the wine denotes its blend on the back label: 30% cinsault, 20% syrah, and 50% grenache noir. Results: It’s a rose with tons of grip, tannic at times with notes of orange peel, spiced nuts, and tobacco leaf — lots of red(der) wine character. There’s more traditional berry fruit on the finish, with strawberry the most dominant against the nagging push of astringency.
