See, with some time and a double decant, not the youngest rosé can be kind.

Dry, minerally, way too young to drink now but love to put a few of these down for 20yrs plus. Loved it !

This 2010 Palette Rouge is harmoniously balanced and was perfect with duck breast. Great now (with some tannic backbone) and will be very long-lived.

Has a crazy clean body, and not viscous either, just silky smooth. Bright acidity hibiscus or rose hip like. Medium tannins And a slight hint of red fruit retro-nasal.
