2.) Rosé, Fleur De Mer, Cotes de Provence, FR, 2020

Wine Enthusiast: 90 Points

Fleur de Mer is a celebration of Provence and is evocative of the region's distinctive charming blend of vineyards, gardens, and coastline. The grapes for Fleur de Mer are grown in France's A.O.C. Côtes de Provence, in what they call the "golden triangle" between Cuers, Pierrefeu and Puget Ville – focusing almost exclusively on Rosé wines.

Tasting Notes: Ripe, soft and perfumed, this is an immediately attractive wine in a classic style. It has a slightly saline character, with pepper and zesty orange flavors.

3.) Rosé "BY.OTT", Domaine Ott, Cotes de Provence, FR, 2020

James Suckling: 91 Points

In 1896, after a tour of France's many vineyards, Marcel Ott, a young graduate in agronomy engineering, finally found an estate that inspired him. Today, 120 years later, cousins Christian and Jean-François Ott dedicate their life to their ancestor's love for the site. Christian and Jean-François run three estates – each of these properties has its own individual charm and personality – and are very proud of their extremely elegant Rosé, red and white wines.

4.) Rosé "Whispering Angel", Côtes de Provence, FR, 2019

James Suckling: 92 Points

Created by Sacha Lichine following his acquisition of Château d'Esclans in 2006, his vision was to create the greatest rosés in the world igniting the "Rosé Renaissance." Sacha introduced new and innovative winemaking techniques to Provence which revolutionized the styles of rosés being produced from this region. This led to the creation of Whispering Angel, a world class rosé which presents both ease and accessibility making for enjoyment and pleasure.

Tasting Notes: Very pale apricot-pink color. Delicate aromas of sliced apple, cream and stones follow through to a medium body and crisp acidity. Deliciously creamy and smooth.

5.) Rosé "La Croix", Peyrassol , Provence, FR, 2020

Robert Parker: 91 Points

With almost 800 years of existence, the Commanderie de Peyrassol is considered a landmark in the history of Provence. More than a winery, the Commanderie has thrived for centuries as a sanctuary for gathering travelers, all the while, holding true to its precious values of hospitality and conviviality. Inspired by the values at the origin of the estate: a sense of place, of great energy and centuries old commitment to hospitality, Peyrassol is now, more than ever, synonymous with great wines and celebrated generosity across the world.

Tasting Notes: An intense rosé that demands attention. It hints at passion fruit at first, then broadens out to include notes of pink grapefruit, red currant and even a touch of peach, but it always retains a sinewy structure and bright acidity.

Wine Enthusiast: 91 Points

Gracefully perched atop a stunning promontory at 2,200 feet, the DAOU Spanish Colonial style winery is embraced by a tangible serenity in the golden hills of Paso Robles, CA. Hawks wheel and bank while the all-day sun caresses close planted rows of lush, emerald green vines. Coupled with the infectious passion and gracious, family style hospitality of the Daou brothers, Georges and Daniel, the result is pure magic. The kind of magic that comes in a bottle.

Tasting Notes: Light peach and apricot aromas are leveled by wet rock, rose and lemon peel accents on the nose of this bottling. Melon and stone fruit flavors are splashed by a bit of citrus.
