 Tasted by bechi on 7/18/2013: Over the hill. (1926 views)
 Tasted by winemaker on 5/23/2012 & rated 90 points: Pale pink, smells a bit floral. Crisp, clean and refreshing. (3840 views)
 Tasted by bechi on 9/12/2011 & rated 90 points: Beautiful frosted glass bottle with glass stopper. Pale peach in the glass with a light, subtle nose. Typical red berries and clover with interesting notes of melon and bananas and a hint of lemon. Really super summer wine. (5128 views)
 Tasted by DruStemm on 9/5/2011 & rated 93 points: Bouquet: Mineral, strawberry, clover and dandelion, minor acidity. Palate: Slight dryness with the appropriate feeling of a mouth coating and no after taste, refreshing soft finish, lots of limestone and wild strawberry. (5246 views)
 Tasted by winemaker on 7/30/2011 & rated 91 points: Better than the last bottle and better than the bottle of the Cuvee Belier I had recently. (5225 views)
 Tasted by air guitar & pinot noir on 7/22/2011 & rated 91 points: Hot temps of summer, long day at work, hellish commute, only to arrive home to this chilled gem. Definitely a highlight of the summer for one who normally does not pursue these types of wine. Bright strawberry, clean entry and nice flavor profile. Fire up the grill or hit the pool or beach.

 Tasted by ericindc on 7/9/2011 & rated 86 points: This would be good for most people, I like heavier and fruitier rose. Great nose, but taste was a tad light for me. Nose was great with strawberry, lilac, and some petrol/chemically bit that blew off after a few minutes. The taste like I said, was subtle and delicate, flavors were subdued strawberry, pear and rose petals. It did actually have a pleasant acidity with a long finish. (3144 views)
 Tasted by air guitar & pinot noir on 7/2/2011 & rated 91 points: I brought this and consumed with a group at a summer dinner party. Paired well with a variety of appetizers and opened up more than a few eyes regarding the quality and interesting character of this Rose. Offers nice, if subtle, floral notes on the nose and leads to bright strawberry and good structure throughout. Some more complexity than one would expect and a nice acidic backbone that carries it off well. (2854 views)
 Tasted by winemaker on 6/30/2011 & rated 90 points: This is a delicious and enjoyable rose. (3052 views)
 Tasted by air guitar & pinot noir on 6/23/2011 & rated 91 points: There are only a few Rose wines that I have consumed that cry out for encores. This is simply among the best I have had. Well made and attractive packaging only add to the amazingly complex and satisfying contents. A subdued floral nose leads to a very enjoyable palate experience presenting much more than meets the eye. Light and refreshing berries framed by a structure rarely found in these types of wine.

 Tasted by air guitar & pinot noir on 6/19/2011 & rated 91 points: Great Rose with character, balance and some complexity. Aromas of flowers and ripening strawberrys in the garden. This is not a simplistic, one dimensional sweet Rose. This has substance and drinks very well. It shows good depth and just may be my wine of the summer. (3055 views)
 Tasted by shadow on 5/27/2011 & rated 92 points: wow, really nice lite and fresh with plesant mouth feel, wife went back for seconds, a first. (3425 views)
 Tasted by Julius Squeezer on 5/21/2011 & rated 90 points: I usually never review Rose but Chateau Puech-Haut is such an awesome producer that I had to review the 2010 Prestige. Delicious fruit up front and nice sweet wildflower aromas. A stunning summer wine. Well balanced, well made with some substance. This will make an appearance quite often in my back yard this summer.

 Tasted by robw on 5/16/2011 & rated 91 points: Another delicious bottle. (3458 views)
 Tasted by robw on 4/15/2011 & rated 91 points: simply lovely summer wine (3642 views)
 Tasted by robw on 4/5/2011 & rated 91 points: A rosé with amazing depth and fruit forwardness. Not one who usually enjoys rosés, I was positively surprised. (3659 views)
