Haut Alpes (or “Upper Alps”) lies between the Savoie region to the north and the Mediterranean coast of Provence to the south, situated high up in the Alps mountain range that France shares with seven other countries. A breathtakingly spectacular part of the world, it’s home to valleys lined with apple and pear trees, picturesque houses built on steep hills, and sees the Tour de France pass by its mountains nearly every year.
However, a tiny bit of land up here is also home to vineyards, where a handful of producers make fantastic wines that are mostly enjoyed by either the locals or visitors to the nearby alpine ski resorts. Lot 720 is a beauty that comes to us from vineyard slopes planted about 2000 feet above sea level, and is crafted with Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah grapes. A true needle-in-a-haystack find.
Thumbs up from my Son
I'm not a Rose drinker but my Son, is and he said Dad didn't let him down with this one!
Better than most rose options I’ve tried from Cam. I enjoyed the floral/rose petal in the finish. Flavors were delicate, I’d probably prefer drinking by itself vs with dinner.
Really nice wine
Just received our third and fourth cases of this wine! Obviously, we love it. Provence style is our favorite, and considering the cost, I know we'll be very disappointed when it is gone. What a great find, Cam! Thank you.
Enjoyed this rose. Light and not too sweet. Perfect summer wine
Noticed to write home about
I could not drink this wine.
I think this may be the first wine, ever, that I just couldn’t drink. It tasted watered down.
A solid choice for Rose
This wine is a solid choice for a Rose. It's as good as you can expect for a CH wine. It's fruit forward with a dry finish, but I found it a bit acidic for my taste.
Solid Dry Rose
Aroma is prominently florals. There's a little bit of orange zest. Flavor - dry on the tongue, with the florals again being prominent. I think there is still a little note of orange zest even in the flavor, but it's a little pithy as well. I think the acidity is more on the dull side, as opposed to bright, but it's still refreshing and a solid buy given the quality/price.
Wonderful taste of summer
This Rose has been a particular favorite through this hot smoky summer. It is cool refreshment in a glass. We havecenjoyed itvwith a variety of foods from summer salads to grilled meats, chicken and shrimp. We love Roses in the warmer months and this is a hit for us. We love getting our boxes from CH Wines. Makes the day (and subsequent days) very special and festive. Thanks!
My wife really likes this wine.
