CÔTE DES ROSES ROSÉ 2016 AP Languedoc
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer GÉRARD BERTRAND
Extremely pale bright light salmon pink colour. Slightly spicy, faintly honeyed, gently fruity, plum-apple-ruby grapefruit nose. Fairly dry, light bodied, slightly spicy, very pleasant, fresh, apple-tinged, melon-plum flavours with a crisp, unoaked finish. This blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah has 12.5% alcohol and 12 g/L residual sugar with lot number MS17287 on the back label. TIM APPELT / 89-points / BEST BUY - Light salmon-pink in colour. Vibrant aromas of red apples, strawberries, and lemon, with notes of apple blossoms and dried herbs. Technically off-dry, but the bright acidity hides most of the residual sugar, and the alcohol is nicely balanced. The fruit is generous on the palate, but a pleasant phenolic bitterness adds complexity and helps dry the finish. An approachable rosé with excellent structure. Highly recommended.
