Considered a rising star of the southern Rhône, this biodynamic domaine is located just northwest of Gigondas. Here Daniel Boulle produces several different cuvées of Côtes du Rhône which have won him considerable acclaim. His rosé is made from 50% Cinsault, 35% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, and 5% Counoise. The wine offers ripe red berries, orange zest and a subtle floral quality on the fragrant nose. Broad, fleshy and dry, displaying good, spicy lift to the raspberry, cherry and blood orange flavors. Smoothly plays richness off delicacy and finishes with solid thrust and lingering red fruit character.

Not yet reviewed; 2018 vintage rated 90 points by Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "Light vivid orange. Deeply perfumed raspberry, tangerine and candied rose scents are accompanied by a slowly building hint of succulent herbs. Broad and fleshy on the palate, offering bitter cherry and red berry preserve flavors and a refreshingly spicy touch of white pepper. Finishes velvety and long, displaying resonating florality and an energizing jolt of dusty minerals. Drink: 2019-2022."
