LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
TASTING NOTE: The sunshine and warmth of the 2016 vintage shines through in this very fine second edition of the Vivant rosÚ by Malivoire, styled after the southern French, Provenšal style. It's still tight and a little sulphury on the nose - just bottled - but that should be resolved in the next couple of months, ready to enjoy in early summer. The palate has very good verve and liveliness in a dry style, firm and crisp, with delicate red berry fruit and very good length. Very tidy.
