2018 Cicada’s Song Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence Rosé
Tasting Notes ~ Produced by the loved Château des Annibals this classic Provençal rose has aromas of fresh red berries, melon, and sweet white flowers. The round palate has plenty of sea air minerality and lilting acid woven into the fleshy stone fruit and light raspberry, framed by wild herbs and white pepper. The innovative use of Rolle (also known as Vermentino) and the ancient Tibouren grape for most of the blend sets this apart from other Provence rosés by giving it a savory complexity and invigorating, wind-swept snap. Don’t be afraid of the vintage - both the 2018 and 2019 Provence Rose vintage produced wines so high in tight acidity that they are just now calming down in the bottle and are now absolutely perfect!
