Review: 2019 Maison No. 9 Rose Mediterranee IGT
That’s right folks, this is Post Malone’s rose, a Provence-style bottling of 45% Grenache Noir, 25% Cinsault, 15% Syrah, and 15% Merlot that carries the unusual Mediterranee IGP regional designation on its label. (Mediterranee spans Provence, parts of the Rhone, and Corsica.)
A very floral rose, there’s so much perfume in this glass that it can be hard to taste much of anything else. Honeysuckle, white flowers, and rose petals are all whipped into a semi-sweet slurry here, though the finish is surprisingly green and almost vegetal at times. Somehow the wine comes across as simultaneously underdeveloped and blown-out, though its overall character is so harmless that it’s difficult to really be offended by it.
