The bold, fruit-laden 2020 Cotes de Provence Rose Esprit Gassier features scents of strawberries, peaches and ripe citrus on the nose. A blend of 39% Grenache, 21% Syrah and 20.5% Cinsault, with small amounts of Mourvedre, Carignan, Rolle, Cabernet Sauvignon, Semillon, Tibouren and Clairette, it's a simple, light to medium-bodied effort that should be drunk over the summer months.
