What I’ve been drink­ing this month

Decanter - - LETTERS -

You should (I hope) be en­joy­ing some rosé weather as you read this and if you like the pale, grace­ful Provence style with a lit­tle ex­tra vivid fresh­ness, look out for pink wines from the in­land zone of Côtes de Provence Ste-Vic­toire, tem­pered by its cool nights. We’ve been en­joy­ing the el­e­gantly pack­aged Château Gassier, Le Pas du Moine 2015. It’s based on a com­plex blend of Ugni Blanc and Rolle with Syrah, Gre­nache and Cin­sault and has suc­cu­lent peach-straw­berry fruits but stony fi­nesse too: drink­able, re­fresh­ing, sat­is­fy­ing.
