2016 Saint-Chinian Rosé

Mas Champart

   $17.00

ADD

If you enjoy the treasured rosés of Bandol but prefer to spend half the price, take note of this steal from Saint-Chinian, just hours west of the esteemed Provençal appellation. Made from roughly the same grape varieties—with a hearty dose of Mourvèdre, most significantly—the Saint-Chinian is crisp, stony, fleshy, and herbaceous. Garrigue abounds: rosemary, thyme, lavender, and many more divine scents make Mas Champart’s rosé intriguing, refreshing, and, most important, delicious. Just as a bottle of this can be inexplicably drained in no time, our stock will disappear before we know it, so we recommend foresight in planning your future rosé consumption. –Anthony Lynch
