    He said: We have had both the 2012 and 2013 and thought they were great…the 2014 was every bit as good, and because we looked forward to having it the wine was even better. The wonderful bouquet and powerful, smooth as silk taste are OUTSTANDING, then when you only pay $11.70 it’s a jumping up and down Quality wine at a bargain price.

    She said: The aroma of this wine is outstanding! Very fruity, it leads to a smooth, creamy texture and long delicious finish. It was refreshing with the chili but over powered by it and was far more delicious alone after dinner. We have reviewed other vintages of this wine favorably and I am still very enthusiastic about it. A great bargain wine at $11.70!

    Comments: Also note the 2012 Domaine Houchart Cotes de Provence Rosé was on our Best Wines of 2013 list and the 2013 was also outstanding
