notably pink colour; soda pop, redcurrant aroma in a curvy bouquet. The palate has aromatic couches, a flavour of white strawberry. It’s simple, undemanding. To 2021 Feb 2020

pink robe; the bouquet pleases, off we go, rests on candy, fine, ripe redcurrants, a few herbs, shows some reduction. This drinks well and clearly, is soft and inviting, has low acidity, a calm deal. This is good terrace wine with late fragrance, a w.o.w. pleasure. 12.7°. Bottled early March 2019. €7.60. To spring 2020 Feb 2019

shiny, pale pink. Has a soft aroma of redcurrant, light strawberry – the nose is refined. The palate holds mild richness, floral dabs; this is fleeting rosé, is aromatic over body wine. It drinks OK. 12.5°. To mid-2019 Feb 2018
