LCBO Note Status
TASTING NOTE: This elegant pink wine blends 50% Cabernet Franc, 32% Pinot Meunier, 9% Pinot Noir and 9% Merlot with the colour coming, saignée-style, from the Merlot. It opens with ripe nectarine, strawberry, maraschino cherry and pimento aromas. There's lovely mouthfeel, with tangy acidity bringing notions of sour apple and pink grapefruit. This will be wonderful with roast chicken, grilled or smoked salmon, summer salads, deep-fried arancini or pancetta-wrapped grilled scallops. (Vintages panel, April 2018) Price $ 29.95
