Yesterday I posted some "catch up" reviews and I'm still catching up! Now let's go through a couple of very nice and one naughty Rose.
The Rose is made from 60percent Grenache gris, 30 percent Cinsault, and 10 percent Grenache Noir. It's a beautiful light salmon color typical of Southern France Rose. I got floral hints and herbs and a really nice and refreshing glass of wine for $15.99.
When I found the average price on the internet at $11, I'm not sure I liked it as much! But at either price it's a great summer sipper.
Chateau Ollieux Romanis 2011 Rose, $11-$15.99, Recommended.
I'm not sure if it was the gamay, the wine making process, or what - but I ended up pouring it out. The wine had not gone bad but not to my taste at all.
Coteaux D' Ancenis 2011 Rosm $12.99, Not Recommended.
And this Rose, is a triple crown winner - fruit, balance and acidity is everything you'd want in a well-made white/Rose' wine. It's crisp, clean and bold enough cherry fruit to make most Rose' fans happy. The finish was nice and it really made me re-think Rose' of Pinot.
Lachini Vineyard 2010 Rose of Pinot Noir, $19.99, Highly Recommended
