On the nose, I got some bright fruit that included strawberry and cherry. I also thought there was a touch of banana, but not in an overbearing way. There was plenty of honeysuckle on the sniffer, as well.
The palate confirmed what the nose was telling me: the honey and strawberry came through nicely and I’ll be darned if the banana didn’t cut through a bit. An hour and a half in, the nose and the palate showed honey, honey, and more honey, with a touch of strawberry in there.
The Domaine du Prieure was a medium-bodied rosé that came off as a bit syrupy. As such, I would recommend pairing it with some cheese or the like. It’s a nice enough bottle for around $13 and will do the trick on a warm summer afternoon on the patio or deck while grilling—nothing great, but not bad, either. In the end, it’s wine and that’s o.k.
