Baron M Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence Rosé

Baron M

I have found myself buying another bottle of Baron Maxime (or Baron M for short) as I walked past it at Costco this week. For the price, I felt it was just rude not to.

The Baron M rosé is a blend of Provencal stalwarts of predominantly Grenache (70%) and Carignan (20%) with an addition of Cabernet Sauvignon. Baron ‘M’s’ pale and delicate pink hue has a bronzed shimmer. Aromas of raspberry, lavender, cream and spice also have a light smokiness. Don’t serve this wine too cold as the crunchy acid takes the limelight rather than the fruit. Enjoy with or without food. It goes down well with a lunch of quiche and salad or as a sundowner with a simple bowl of olives and spicy nuts.

(And …. it is a memorable label too!)
