December 29, 2014 - Rose' on a cold winter's night? Sure, why not. Has the stuffins to hold up. In fact, it's a rose' that wishes it was a red. Salmon colored with decent legs. Light strawberry and field flower notes in the nose. Creamy mouthfeel with precise acidity. Zesty strawberry, quince and gooseberry on the palate, with a refreshing finish. Lighter than previous vintages. But still a go-to wine when we want rose'.

December 13, 2014 - Interesting wine for its color -- and very attractive. Better once on the tongue than just in the nose -- fruity, mildly acidic and alcohol taste without the strong tannin finish you get from the same grapes when left on the skins longer to finish the deep red color.

July 24, 2014 - Not my favorite. Scents of rose petals. Flavor was lacking.

July 12, 2014 - Decent rose, a bit thin, with nose of fresh strawberry. Taste of strawberry with some berry too. Good on a hot summer afternoon in Phoenix.
July 11, 2014 - Very nice on a hot day, with its reddish colour and inviting aromas with echoes of strawberries, but somehow does not leave quit the same impression as the Tempier Bandol rosé.
