Fresh and racy, offering tea, savory, white cherry and wet stone notes that drive through the finish, where the savory edge lingers. For fans of the herb-tinged style. Muskmelon, peach and dried spices mark the nose of Montaud’s 2019 Cotes de Provence Rose. Despite all the fruit up front, this medium-bodied effort seamlessly transitions into a dry, spice-driven finish lined with crushed stone. Nicely done. Food pairing: As an aperitif with vegetables and Provencal custards or with Sausage and meat pies. It perfectly suits seafood dishes, Mediterranean or exotic ones and Japanese meals.
