Another Summer Rosé

2011 Minuty Rosé
This Côtes de Provence Rosé wine consist of 50% Grenache, 35% Cinsault and 15% Tibouren. The nose is fresh, light and appetizing with notes of red currants, elder berry, gooseberries, dusting sugar and a touch of bonfire. Not to sweet on the nose, as rosés can get, and not too bone dry either - very nicely in between.
The taste is fresh, elegant and perky with lots of summer red berries and notes of dry licorice, road dust, candied lemons and a hint of vanilla pods. Very good. The finish is medium long, fresh and with just the right level of dryness. Lovely with food - in this case a chicken sallad - but equally lovely on its own. This one will be popped more times this summer! But isn´t the bottle a bit tacky...? :-)
