Tasting Notes Houchart's star is the 2019 Cotes de Provence Sainte-Victoire Rose, which marries a fairly rich, weighty mid-palate to a long, spice-driven finish. This rosé is almost cherry-like in its aromas and flavors, but it brings in hints of melon and peach and then layers of dried spices that make the explosive finish the most exciting aspect of this wine.
