|TRADITION ROSÉ 2016 AP Luberon
|Vintage Assessments Tasting Note
||CHÂTEAU VAL JOANIS
|Bright pale salmon pink colour. Slightly spicy, faintly honeyed, somewhat dusty, dried, plum-apple nose. Dry, light bodied, slightly spicy, bright, somewhat hot, apple-plum flavours with a very crisp, unoaked finish. Ready-to-drink. This blend of Syrah and Grenache has 13% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L17025 on the lower part of the glass bottle and a screwcap closure. Not up to the 2015 which appeared in Vintages (**) with 87-points on May 28, 2016 at $15.95 and was an Explorer Selection.
||Rosé Table Wine
Dry, Spicy, Apple-Plum
|The consistent red fruit and blossoms in this rosé from Château Val Joanis have made it a bit of a tradition here at Vintages: it has appeared on our shelves every summer since 2003. A fine and finessed sipper, this is also a serious rosé with the structure and texture to pair with everything from shellfish to salmon, barbecued chicken or grilled pork ribs.
