`Chateau Paradis` Coteaux d`Aix en Provence 2015 Rosé

`Chateau Paradis` Coteaux d`Aix en Provence 2015 Rosé, $12.99-$14.99, 90 points, poured an unusually light transparent apricot orange.
Flowers, ripe melon, and strawberry aromas were good.
Light, appropriately acidic, delicate, and gulp-able, this was a delicious Rosé of easy strawberry, red raspberry, kiwi and a touch of hazelnut flavors; paired great with spicy tostadas, but I'd drink this with almost anything, from burgers to sardines and most sea-foods, or Asian cuisine.
Finished fair with a touch of ginger and a well-balanced 13.5% alcohol.
This is why I love French Rosés.
Differing web sites vary on the varietals, some say Cinsault, Carignan, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, others have a variation of those, but the bottle says 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache.
