A home-run of a Rose by one of Southern France’s top producers at a truly gulpable price. This is probably the best Rose I’ve had in 2022.
You’ve probably heard me talk about Marjorie and Stephane before. Nearly 20 years ago, they took a chance on an ancient vineyard in Languedoc-Roussillon – abandoned because it was nearly impossible to farm with any modern equipment.
The decision maybe didn’t seem to make much sense at first but the wines were absolutely stunning and eventually the sommelier set in Paris caught on to Roc Des Anges. These days, the wines are found at some of the top Michelin-starred restaurants on both sides of the pond.
The 2021 Effet Papillon Rose has arrived– fresh off the boat from France. It is once again made 100% from Grenache (as many of the best Southern French Roses are). Pale salmon in color, it boasts aromas of bright red fruits, orange rinds and a hint of lemon zest. It’s incredibly smooth and dry, making it a great food wine– but this Rose is serious with depth and complexity, making it worthy of enjoying on its own.
