Cote des Roses Rosé, Gerard Bertrand, 2015

with No Comments

I have to admit that I was attracted to this wine by the beauty of the bottle design; its base (or punt) is in the shape of a rose, a rose for a rosé, an absolutely fabulous idea. I also wanted to test the glass stopper too – I am still an MW student (!)

The wine is a very typical and well-made rosé blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah grapes from Languedoc in the South of France. It has subtle aromas of raspberries, cherries, honeysuckle and herbs.  It is light, very refreshing and makes for a delicious aperitif, if any should be leftover for dinner then no doubt it would go well with seafood or salmon dishes.

Euro 5.99 throughout France

PS the stopper worked quite efficiently but didn’t seem robust enough to keep as a re-usable container – I’ll keep the next one and let you know how I get on…
