WINE REVIEW: 2018 Fleurs de Prairie, Vin de Provence, France ($18)

by Andrew Chalk


Appearance: Light salmon color.

Nose: Peaches, pepperiness.

Palate: crispness from good acid, peach flavors.

Overall: Provence is the sentinel of rosé wine having grown the category to a market share exceeding that of white wine in its native France. U.S. sales data show rosé is growing its market share with seemingly all wine producers producing one. As a category, rosé is light, widely pairable, and ready to drink when you purchase it. Typically serve them as quaffing wines (ideal for summer parties) or with fish (this one paired consummately with Copper River salmon), or vegetable soups.
