So fresh & special & drenched in buzzing, sparkly minerals after 6+ years in my "too cool to open" pile (precious little was brought to the States, I was told at the time). A holiday treat.

Solid Loire Rosé. For Provence fans., this one does have a bit of that Cab Franc funkiness. Specifically, a little farmy, and a bit of asparagus. But not overwhelming.
