Le Pas du Moine, Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire
The Wine Advocate
“The 2017 Cotes de Provence Sainte Victoire Rose le Pas du Moine is a much bigger, richer wine than the winery's Esprit Gassier. Passion fruit aromas lead off on the nose, followed by hints of guava and pink grapefruit."
Pale peach skin. Intensely perfumed, mineral-accented strawberry, nectarine and orange zest scents and a hint of lavender. Silky, seamless and precise on the palate, offering incisive red berry and citrus fruit flavors and an exotic touch of honey.
Named after the footpath that monks followed to the top of Sainte-Victoire mountain, this wine brings out the texture and the richness of this region of Côtes de Provence. It is made from organically grown grapes, bringing ripe, full-flavored fruit to balance with the good acidity. Drink this rich wine now.
