Grand Veneur 'Bellissime' Rosé 2022
91 POINTS: Wine Direct Tasting Team
90 POINTS: James Suckling
Bellissime means beautiful, or magnificent, which is how a lot of people describe the Provencal lifestyle: sunny most of the year, gorgeous small of garrigue around the area (thyme, lavender, rosemary) as well as the legendary sound of the cicadas (cigales). Salmon-pink color, clear and brilliant. The nose is fruity and spicy, reminiscent of wild strawberry and fine Provencal spices. The palate is full, well-balanced and fruity, with a long, fresh finish. A beautiful and delicate rosé.
Grand Veneur's Rosé is a saignee from their Côtes du Rhône red, made from 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Cinsault and it's fantastic! Strawberry-scented slurpable Rosé. Perfect for the boat, bach and BBQ.
"This delicious Côtes du Rhône Rosé is a terrific example of the wonderful knack the Jaume family have of making dry-but-generous Rosé, offering loads of juicy framboise fruit, medium to full body, and a spicy, polished, dry but fruit-fuelled finish. It strikes a good balance between a lighter, Provençal rosé and the richer styled Tavel rosé."

"This smells and tastes very like a modern-style Provence rosé, but is even crisper and more spritzy. Super-fresh floral, strawberry and redcurrant aromas. Either this is exactly the refreshment you’re looking for, or it could be slightly too refreshing. Drink now."
- James Suckling
"This estate, under the leadership of Sebastien Jaume, continues to be one of the reference point producers for relatively modern styled Châteauneuf du Papes. In addition to their top tier efforts, the portfolio is loaded with smoking values at just about every price point."
