Date of Tasting: 28 October 2015
Wine Type: Rose
Grape Varieties: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère
Alcohol: 13%
Origin: Cotes de Bordeaux Francs, France
Appellation: Cotes de Bordeaux
Expect to Pay: ~ EUR50
Chubby Appreciation: 92/100
Critics' Opinion: n.a.

Appearance: Dark pink but bright, almost ruby like red wine.
Aroma: Fresh garden/forest floor and earth with red berries aroma.
Palate: Smooth texture with medium-bodied compound. Bright and juicy. Clean cut acidity. Red berries note. Complex too.

Beautiful but unique. It has so much of distinct personality. Perhaps it is because of biodynamic and terrior thingy. Those forest floor and garden breeze seemed to hit the nose determinedly. Forget those others clairet you may have experienced. Oh....almost forgot, the word I had been looking for is cough medicine syrup. Surely you must have experienced this thing when you were young. Yes, it did have aroma and did taste a bit like cough medicine syrup but just barely though. Anyway, I had this along with seafood and it was enjoyable. Well, enjoy it within a few years upon released, I guess. Interesting rose wine as an experience and the blend too. Cheers!!!
