2018 Commanderie de la Bargemone Coteaux d’Aix en Provence Rose

2018 Commanderie de la Bargemone Coteaux d’Aix en Provence Rose

This was the only Rose at my Costco on the day I was there that I hadn’t tasted before, so I figured I’d give it a shot.  And I’m glad that I did and have the chance to report back to all of you.

This wine is absolutely delicious and completely caught me off guard.  I did some poking around after writing my notes and it turns out that the critics agree.  It received a 91 from Wine Enthusiast and a 90 from Wine Advocate.

Bargemone Rose

Not bad for a wine that retails for $21 but Costco is selling for $12.99.  I plan to stock up if it’s still hanging around my Costco on my next visit.  I’m sure all of you will be looking for it too now.

The blend is 40% Grenache, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, and 5% Rolle.  It pours a light pink in color with a juicy nose with fresh flowers.  In the mouth, the wine has strawberry, cherry and pear flavor; dry finish.

Very, very nice.  Clearly a Rose you can drink year-round and a stand out Costco Rose for me this year.  This makes a nice addition to our Top Picks list.  Thank you Costco as this is a wine I might not have discovered had it not been gracing Costco’s shelves. Rating: 90 points (a Costco Wine Top Pick)

This has been my go-to rose for years. My Costco didn't carry it last year, so I was glad when it returned in 2019. I love it! I was starting to think it was simply sentimental since I lived in Aix en Provence for a summer. Glad to see my obsession is justified :P
