Rosé wine values tasted in 2006

The selected vibrant bottlings have given me much pleasure for the price. I have purchased them again for personal consumption. Featured values include 5 wines from Provence and 5 organic wines.

The below wines were tasted in France, in 2006 (between April and December). The tasting notes are listed by increasing prices, with the following format:

Appellation - producer - plot or brand - variety
Vintage - approximate price - general impression - on nose - on palate - after swallowing

blush Vin de pays des maures - Domaine Turenne - Aubrégades - [Cinsault 90%]

2005 - 4 € - a scent of peach skin - dense, mouth-watering, alcohol shows much, fresh

blush Vin de pays du Var - Patrick Mourlan - Bastide des Oliviers - (rosé)

2005 - 4 € - not much manipulated (much less so than Pique-Roque) - not much scent - round, strawberry, dense, much alcohol, fresh

blush Vin de table - Le Mazel - Pétillant rosé - Carignan

[2004] - 4 € - not much showing on the nose - pink grapefruit, few mid-sized bubbles, very sweet, fresh, a note of brewer's yeast (slightly acidic and bitter)

blush Vin de pays des maures - Pique-Roque

2005 - 4 € - out of the present pick of blush wines, Pique-Roque is the only one that is not organic, it is our standard representative of the Provence rosé wines, complete with flower and apparent winemaking - the nose is dominated by flower - the wide mouth presence shows neither fat nor the fudge note of some Provence rosés, instead it shows flower and freshness

Côtes-de-provence wine labelblush Côtes de provence - Domaine Turenne - Camille - [Cinsault 80%]

2005 - 5 € - the grape expresses itself finely thanks to a supportive winemaking (as opposed to obtrusive) - dust, carambola (star fruit) - no flower, a lot of fruit (carambola, a hint of redcurrant), much alcohol (wide), fresh

blush Coteaux varois - Patrick Mourlan - Bastide des Oliviers - (rosé)

2005 - 7 € - very pure - the palate shows nectarine, density, tiny gas beads, and freshness
