A fairly deep salmon-pink colour enhanced by a long stream of fine bubbles. Clear and wonderfully fresh, reminiscent of red and black fruit like raspberries, black cherries and blackcurrants. The first impression is the freshness of the fruit. The sensation is rounded and supple and remains on the palate for a considerable time. Accolades WS 89 A delicate rose, with strawberry and watermelon flavors, picking up honey as this builds on the finish. There’s firm structure in the end. Drink now through 2012. Wine Spectator, Score: 89 Perfect Pairings A delicious aperitif. Poultry or fresh and lightly matured cheeses. An original association is with red fruit desserts or lightly spiced Thai dishes.
