Tasting Note:

A wonderful, very pretty but also quite confident pale strawberry and salmon colour - beautiful really and unmistakably a Rosé. The nose is complex with wild red fruits, chamomile and mint, dots of spice and espelette pepper, cumin rose and zesty lemon notes behind. Rich and mouth filling, with a light phenolic grip that softens to reveal a creamy, supple finish. This is the sort of vinous, complex rosé that really ought to be drunk from a bigger glass. Going back this balances a crisp mousse with the rich concentration of 2012 making for a truly vinous glass of wine. I love the sense of presence, the way the flavours are pure and complex, on a structure that is textured and dense yet bright and fresh too. A top effort, very grown up, rich and concentrated yet dry and fresh too. This bottle would be a great friend to pigeon or duck.
