Two More Bottles of Rosé

I keep downing those rosé bottles. Speaking of which, here is an interesting article about these wines.

2012 Tavel La Dame Rousse, Domaine de la Mordorée
Yet again the Rosé from la Mordorée is a sure winner. The nose is fresh and clean with notes of red currants, wild strawberries, flowers and a fine white peppar note. With air some rosemary aromas comes through. Very good.
The taste is medium bodied with a fresh acidity and notes of raspberries, red currants, licorice and lots of dried spices. In the finish there is, as on the nose, some white peppar flavours. Very easy to appreciate.

2012 Domaine de la Tour du Bon Rosé
This was one of the best rosé´s last year, but the 2012 version doesn´t even come close. The nose is rather feeble - you have to swirl the glass heavily too get some aromas - and then you get some notes of elderberries, red currants, road dust and dried spices. There is shortness of depth and it appears to be anemic.
The taste is cool, tight and foursquare with some flavours of red currants, dried strawberries and gravel. A medium long finish that is rather hollow. Went ok with food but this is no charmer.
