2011 ()

light red cherry robe; has a good, running bouquet – an air of red cherry jelly with a beckoning sweet touch, a seductive smile. The palate spreads widely straight away, so is a nice mouth filler, with plenty of early action. The undertow of sweetness carries through it. Fine for solo drinking, especially if served good and cold. The length is OK. There is a bit of grip, closing in, at the end, this is facile and approachable, an agreeable, slightly unusual rosé from France – a rolling red fruit with a plump middle, and it persists. 12.5°.
