Begins with an inviting nose of pear & a toasty creaminess. The pallate is crisp, refreshing and has backbone of minerality. Intial flavors of lemon zest & curb move into creme fraiche, and flint on a surprisingly long finish for a rosé. Paired quite well with dry rub chicken wings! [11/10/20]

It is Sunday evening and I have opened the 2019 Domaine de Fontsainte Corbières Gris de Gris Rosè. This wine is a blend of 90% Grenache Gris, 5% Carignan and 5% Mourvèdre.

On the nose there is strawberry, melon, cherry, citrus zest, orange blossom, honey and minerality.

The palate has notes of strawberry, cherry, tart peach, citrus notes, a good saline and minerality.

This wine is light to medium bodied that is very well balanced with medium + acidity that leads to a long fresh crisp finish. A beautiful rosè from the Languedoc. I hope everyone's weekend was a good one? Please stay healthy and continue being safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

It’s rosé, how high could one possibly rate it? 90% Grenache Gris. Refined. Refreshing. Escapist.

Wonderful crisp refreshing rose with a touch of creaminess. Another go to rose.

This wine is the perfect intersection of quality and price. 15 bucks. Bracing acidity, bright fruit, salinity. I’ve had dozens of bottles of this wine over the years, and it never disappoints.
