Maybe so, but a provencal Rose is still PROVENCAL!

In my head, I am there with a glass of:

2018 Vintage Notes: Hermine Clermont, Peyrassol’s spirited young winemaker
says this cute is a classic Provence rosé without being heavy or overly structured, but still offering good concentration. Varieties and parcels are all vinified individually. 

Tasting Notes: A workhorse rosé, Commanderie shines in 2018,
the best example of Commanderie in recent memory. Built around equal parts Cinsault and Grenache, with splashes of Syrah and Rolle, it is a chiseled rosé
with pronounced salt component and a driving energy on the palate.
The fruit is tight and focused. The finish is long and persistent. Dry.

New York Times suggests pairing a dry rose
with a Charred Tomato Soup with Coriander and Cilantro.
