(2021) Well, I loved this rosé in my big tasting of 2021's pinks I must say, made from 100% Gamay and from Beaujolais. Yes, it is fashionably Provence pale, but feels totally un-contrived unlike some. The vineyards are cultivated under the 'Terra Vitis' biological system (close to organic with a few allowances), and the wine opens with great succulence and delicacy: rose-hip, summer blossom and peach down are the notes, leading on to a palate where a zesty lemon acidity ensures a dry finish, but that's after the small redcurrant and peach fruit charms the mid-palate. A really lovely rosé this, great value for money, and one of my favourites of my extensive pink wine tasting. Watch the video for more information.
(2014) Made in stainless steel in very limited quantities this is 100% Gamay and is a pale peachy/salmon coloured rose. There's immediate minerality and stony refinement, though it is not without a subtle red berry and peach fruitiness. On the palate it has lovely clarity and delicacy. There's a tang of orange to the flavour, small redcurrant notes, and plenty of acidity. Despite only having 12% alcohol by volume it somehow feels quite powerful, with that bracing acid backbone and touch of textural richness.
