Château Miraval

Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2017

Think I like this better than the last Miraval vintage which is to say, totally solid and yum grocery store avail rosé that when the warm weather beckons you can crack alongside your springtime frolics. But like, better than a lot of rosé. Maybe not on par w my faves but damn enjoyable. Okay WSET-(ish)analysis.
Eye: almost salmon
Nose: medium intensity raspberry meringue and an invigorated river
Tongue: medium plus acid, medium alcohol (13%) and medium plus bod for a pink. Flavors of raspberry foam, vanilla cream and, like big stones tossed into a cobbler, damn that is not technically wset but I’ll save those notes for the test I have coming. Anyway yum. Maybe I am too happy to drink a happy pink lime Miraval but I’m into this one about as much as I was the year I discovered it which I believe was the 2015 vintage. Yay. Go on now. Taste n tell me your thoughts.

@Ellen Clifford Fantastic - well done to you. I might have a crack at the Diploma when I retire - seems like a lot of study.

The stuff that can make poultry sing. Dried oranges, green cooking herbs. Tarragon, anise, sage. Rich savory main course rose’. Buy a few and try one each year - very ageable. — 15 days ago

Inspiration Côtes De Provence Grenache Blend Rosé

Very nice, but a little simple. Aperitif worthy, probably would be overwhelmed by anything other than clean fresh oysters (where it would be amazing, may I suggest cotuit oysters with mignonette made from this rose?) — 12 days ago

Château Minuty

Cuvée M Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2017

Whoa fun! Something savory underlies the ocean current of seashell red berries of various types married to stone fruits like underripe peach. Supes solid grocery store buy. I’d do it at least a couple times if it was good in the glass (it was). Mmmm. M. — 13 days ago
