|ROSÉ DE LEOUBE 2016 AC Provence
|Vintage Assessments Tasting Note
|Bright light salmon pink rose colour. Shy, slightly spicy, faintly honeyed, ripened apple nose with some faint mineral notes. Dry, medium-light bodied, very slightly spicy, ripe melon-apple-plum flavours with a lingering crisp unoaked finish that has good acidity. Quite elegant and ready-to-drink. This is the least expensive of Chateau Leobe’s three roses. A blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvèdre, it has 13% alcohol and only 2 g/L residual sugar.

|TASTING NOTE: This pretty-in-pink wine is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvèdre. It opens with lovely notions of ripe cantaloupe, nectarine, clementine and lavender, and the palate is a promenade of sunny fruit, star bright acidity and elegantly smooth texture transitioning to savoury wild herbs and tangy citrus-peel notes on the finish. Pair with scallops or fish in a light garlic-and-herb butter sauce. (VINTAGES panel, May 2017)
