Winemaker's Notes

Heralded as the greatest Rose in the world, Garrus' limited quantity (6 barrels per vintage) makes it a highly select wine. Noted for its creaminess and lush minerally finish, this wine is uncommonly elegant and has achieved cult status among the wealthy elite of the French Riviera.

Critical Acclaim

"Grenache and rolle, raised in demi-muids. Light copper-pink. Wild, pungent aromas of raspberry, blood orange, yellow rose, vanilla and musky herbs, with nuances of smoky lees and oak spice. Weighty, densely packed orchard fruit and red berry flavors expand in the mid-palate, picking up notes of melon and candied orange peel. The vanilla, spice and floral notes resonate on the creamy, extremely long finish. Impressively rich and potent but at the same time detailed. This would be great with strong cheeses or an equally decadent shellfish dish."
93 Points

"Concentrated aromas and flavors of dried citrus give this rosé plenty of power. Glazed pear and pineapple fill the midpalate, and the creamy finish features rich, spicy notes. Balanced and elegant. Drink now through 2013. 250 cases made."
91 Points
