Commanderie de la Bargemone Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rosé 2016

Wine Enthusiast 91pts:

The origins of this estate go back to the 13th century when it was the property of the Knights Templar. The large 400- acre vineyard has produced this fine rich wine, full of ripe red fruits and with a bright herbal edge. It is bone dry, crisp and ready to drink

Vinous 90pts:

Light bright orange. Mineral-accented citrus fruit and red berry scents show very good clarity and pick up a suave floral note with aeration. Chewy and tightly wound, offering juicy cherry and red currant flavors that slowly put on weight as the wine stretches out. Shows good tension and cut on the finish, which lingers with strong, minerally persistence. Drink 2017 - 2021.

From the importer:

Bargemone is among the foremost estates of the Coteaux d’Aix appellation of Provence. A benchmark producer of the delicious, dry rosé for which Provence is famous, the Commanderie was founded by Templar knights in the13th century, and is home to a proud viticultural tradition and more than 160 acres of sustainably grown vineyards.

Offers classic aromas of wild strawberries and red currants, with a light, floral character and a crisp, bone-dry palate. A rosé of reference, to be enjoyed year-round on its own or with a wide range of lighter fare and Provence-inspired cuisine.
