fine pink robe. The nose is attractive, nicely airborne, combines acacia, rose flowers with soft strawberry. It’s an inviting start. The palate drinks softly and well. The red fruits are fine. A stylish, detailed, well made rosé that will please, is w.o.w. It has the grace for the aperitif, or starter dishes. 13°. 30,000 b. €3.20 export. 80% Gren, 10% Syr, 10% Clair rose. To mid-2017  June 2016

salmon pink, the Leander Rowing Club colours. Low-key sweetness, a redcurrant paste air runs across the nose, a smudge of thyme and garrigue. It is easy to taste the smooth richness on the palate, simmered red fruits present, a wee candy involvement. Doesn’t have big acidity. A table rosé – drink with fish soup, grilled fish etc. Grenache gras lies at its centre, and serves it well. The finish is quiet, the fruit subdued there. 14°. To 2015  Oct 2013
