Château du Carrubier, “Cuvée Ingénue” Rosé MAGNUM Côtes de Provence, France 2019 (1.5L)
Warning: Once you taste today’s mind-bending rosé, high-end Provençal labels like Domaine Tempier ($50+), Château d'Esclans “Garrus” ($100+) and Domaine Ott “Étoile” ($200) may be reduced to obsolescence. There’s a reason Carrubier’s “Cuvée Ingénue” is emerging with top awards in Paris and Provence, and that Wine Enthusiast has rated it right alongside the region’s most expensive and renowned bottlings: it’s an extraordinary, bordering-on-legendary rosé that blows away 99.9% of its competition. But there's no reason whatesoever for us being the first to introduce this to America—it feels as if we’ve discovered the next “big thing” right under everyone’s nose. Taste any $20-$40 Provence rosé and Carrubier’s superiority will stand out like The Great Wall of China from outer space. Taste it alongside the above-mentioned luxury labels and you, too, will swear you’ve just discovered the savviest rosé investment of 2021. Supersize the experience with these limited Magnum formats!
This explodes with ripe, fleshy red fruits like wild strawberry, Honeycrisp apple, watermelon, and raspberry that are enhanced by intense, high-toned notes of grapefruit pith, orange zest, citrus peel, wild herbs, rose petal, crushed rock, white flowers, and a touch of spice. On the palate, each exuberant sip brings long-lasting, mouth-watering layers that reverberate with vivid minerality. Enjoy now, enjoy often, and if a bottle does somehow escape 2020 unscathed, you’ll be thrilled to discover an extra year of aging has elevated it even higher. Cheers!
