Spectacular portfolio headliner rose from Marquiluani. I have the darker of the two rose’s they make but this is on its own very pale pink. It has elegant savory rosemary and tarragon with subtle strawberry melon accents. The mouth is a symphony of herbal flavors playing with some weight and stringent acidity. It is elegant, powerful, concentrated, and one of the best rose’s I’ve taken home. If you can find it definitely get a handful. It’s from the Kermit Lynch portfolio. — 5 years ago
Bright acidity and minerality merge on the palate harmoniously. More please! — 2 years ago

Stuck inside and dreaming of better days abroad or just in a backyard with friends?
This wine helped me take a little escape to the island of Corsica, the home of the one and only Napoleon Bonaparte. This is one of 2 amazing rose wines from Marquiliani. This was my first Gris rose from Marquiliani and it's been a few years since I hade the regular rose.
Domaine Marquiliani is one of the top producers of wine (and olive oil & almonds) on the island and are a small family owned and operated by Anne Amalric and her father Daniel who founded the modern history of this winery in the 1950s.
Pale and watery in color, this is the "Gris" rose. Gorgeous notes of pink citrus, jasmine florals, minerals and fennel seed, no doubt from the high dose of Syrah in the blend. The wine grew tremendously in the glass and after an hour it was firing on all cylinders. Elegant on the palate with a stunning density and length on the nose. Pure and refreshing, it appealed to both the intellectual and hedonistic side of my tastes. Gorgeous, buying more ASAP!
