Winemaker's Notes:

"One of the best roses I have tasted this spring, Grand Cassagne's 2002 Costieres de Nimes rose includes 25% Mourvedre in the blend (the remainder is Grenache and Syrah). Its delicate, light ruby/salmon color is followed by gorgeous aromas of candied strawberries intermixed with raspberries and cherries. This light to medium-bodied, dry rose possesses admirable weight as well as structure."
-The Wine Advocate
My Notes:

About Chateau Grand Cassagne:

Located 25 miles west of Avignon in the small village of St. Gilles, is the area called "Les Cassagnes". The Darde brothers, Laurent and Benoît, farm 80 acres of rocky benchland here, and produce by hand, terrific wines on their estate Grande Cassagne.
