Tasting NotesTransparent red color. Ideally clean aroma exhibiting strawberry and red currant fruit, forthcoming and subtly nuanced. In the mouth, this young rosé is clean, soft and delicately flavored. Medium-bodied, the wine is well-balanced, with lingering notes of red berries. Makes an excellent case for the rosés of Bordeaux, which are undiscovered by American wine drinkers.  - RB
