Named for a subregion of France’s Roussillon, Department 66 is a diamond in the rough. When vintner Dave Phinney falls in love with a vineyard the results are always terrific, but the terroir here is simply perfect for fresh, bright rosés.

Grenache is king in this rural area of Southern France, where it ripens to make wines of fantastic intensity--whether they’re ruby red or a perfect, transparent pink. Don’t let the name fool you, ‘Fragile’ isn’t a bantam-weight wine--it explodes with fresh fruit character and just enough texture to stand up to any dinner table. At this price, there’s no need to think it over!

About the wine

D-66’s Fragile isn’t a dark, brooding hulk like Orin Swift wines, but it has the same mesmerizing fruit that draws us in and won’t let go. From Dave Phinney’s newest property in the Roussillon region of Southern France, Fragile is sunshine in a bottle.

Grenache leads the way in this bright, refreshing take on schist soil and Mediterreanean breezes that surround Phinney’s vineyards in the town of Maury. Supported by brooding Syrah and wildberry-scented Carignan, Fragile is a delicious, chuggable combination of Roussillon’s finest, with aromas of dried rose petal, ripe apricot, and garrigue. In true Phinney style, there’s enough weight on the palate to drink this rosé with steak, and enough finesse to enjoy it solo, whether you’re on the beach or a snowy mountaintop.

Reviews

3.9 ★ - Vivino Users

"delicately powerful rose that's perfect for me, my porch, and this gorgeous sunny spring day." - Keller

93 pts - Alex Casella, WSET Advanced  

"Vibrant Pink color with a nose of briary fruits, black berry, stone fruit, herbal tea and watermelon seed. Palate strikes with fresh black/blue fruit, ripening plums and summer strawberry. A medium bodied wine so delicious now and will drink well for the next 2 years. Why wait?"

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
