B-21 fans of the greatest Rhone-inspired wines being produced outside the Rhone Valley are no stranger to Gérard Bru and his numerous, outstanding cuvees at Puech-Haut. For over a decade I've witnessed the impressive rise of this estate and the ever-increasing love affair between every imaginable wine critic and the wines bottled at this estate. First it was Michel Rolland in charge of the cellars, soon followed by the masterful Claude Gros of Chateau Negly. Each made their mark. Tasting the wines from the last few years, however, it is clear that Gérard Bru has found his perfect partner with Philippe Cambie. Together, they are bottling pure magic from the estate's limestone parcels and plots dotted with Chateauneuf-like galets. Their Rosé is no exception. Always one of the most complex, yet thoroughly brisk and immediately drinkable, the Puech-Haut Argali Rosé – especially for 2019 – smells and tastes like a bucket full of stone fruits and wild flowers.

Released in a beautiful, frosted bottle, the 2019 Argali Rose reveals a light pink color as well as a terrific nose of tart cherries, citrus pith, white flowers, and white peach. A medium-bodied, rich, beautifully textured rosé, it spans the gap between the vibrant, fresh and quaffable Provençal efforts and a richer, Gigondas or Tavel style rosé. It's beautifully balanced, with good acidity and a clean, crisp finish.
