1701 Rose, IGP Cotes de Thongue, 2017

  Domaine Montrose

Peaches, lemons and gariguette strawberries come flooding out of the glass. It’s breezy yet serious, with a lovely line in tiny wild berries and the gentlest spray of lemon zest. The palate is pure silk, waves of supple fruit that have a surprising depth to them, beautifully integrated acidity and really pure fruit on the finish. Again strawberries, this time with a touch of blood orange and white peach. So seamless and alluring but also satisfyingly bone dry and delicate. Elegance and balance reign supreme in this glorious bottle

Contains Sulphites.
