Chateau De Rouanne Brut Nature Rose 2019 (France)
Producer Notes: Clean, invigorating notes of silex on the nose showcase the limestone soils of the Rouanne vineyard. The aromas and flavors develop as the wines opens to reveal wild strawberry and fresh thyme – a complex and flavorful sparkling rosé.
The tension of the acidity and bubbles lifts the rounds of the red fruit flavors, making this a fresh and elegant sparkling wine. It is an ideal aperitif and can be served with hors d'oeuvres, oysters, or a variety of charcuterie and light salads.
BLEND: 55% Mourvèdre, 20% Cinsault, 10% Syrah, 10% Marselan, 5% Grenach
Wine Enthusiast, 90 Points: “Wild raspberries and sun-kissed garrigue perfume this fruity but brisk, zero-dosage sparkling rosé. A Mourvèdre-dominant blend with Cinsault, Syrah, Marselan and Grenache, it has pristine red-berry and sour-cherry flavors that are lifted by a firm, flinty spine and racy acidity. Creamy but finely textured in mousse, it should drink at peak now through 2026."
