J.L. Quinson Rosé 2014

Provence is known for their Rosé.  Finding a wallet-friendly offering from Provence, it was a foregone conclusion that I would buy a bottle.  Wouldn’t you?

Winemaker:  J.L. Quinson
Wine:  Rosé
Vintage:  2014
Appellation:  Côtes de Provence AOC, France
Price:  $7.99 at Trader Joe’s

Notes:   This blush wine was an interesting shade of pink.  It had a tinge of orange to it.  It was light-bodied with good acidity.  The bouquet was very faint with just-there scents of strawberry and pepper. Alcohol was at 12.5%.  Flavors I found were simple but pleasant, including strawberry, grass, and a touch of pepper.  Nothing surprising here in a very good way.  This is a Rosé I would be happy to drink again.

  1. I tried both Quinson Rose’ (it was $6.99 at the TJs) and also Grifone Rose’ (at $3.99, also at TJs). I liked the latter quite a bit more!
