Yet Another Bottle of Rosé

But unfortunately not a good one. I kind of liked the 2010 last year. Not this vintage though. With a pasta with chicken, pesto and vegetables it behaved acceptable, but on its own it was no fun.

2011 Marsannay Rosé, Bruno Clair
A cool, soft, thin nose with notes of unripe raspberries, rhubarb, gravel and smoke. Rather feeble and lightweight.
The taste is dry, foursquare and seedy with high acidity and not enough fruit to match. The acidity makes it work with the food, but without the food it is too dry and one dimensional.
