Taste: Delicate notes of strawberry and raspberry on the nose are joined by a hint of rhubarb. There is good depth on the silken-textured palate and brisk acidity that keeps the wine snappy. Floral, seamless and decidedly mid-weight rather than insubstantial, it's hard to imagine a better value for impeccably rendered rosé with incomparable pedigree.
Vibes with: Lighter dishes and veggie sides.
Have you ever had a chance to try a Rosé from Vosne Romanée? Arnaud et Sophie make a fantastic passetoutgrain rosé using 100% Vosne Romanée fruit. It’s a blend of 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Gamay aged in 100% stainless steel for 6 months. A perfect dry rosé for summer that offers great tension and freshness with a nice balance of fruit and earth. This is a very well-made terrace, beach or backyard wine that you can drink by itself or pair with any light summer dishes.
Well, Vosne-Romanée seems as good a place as any to find characterful rosé, an assumption that this spirited wine deliciously confirms.
Arnaud Sirugue and Sophie Noëllat together produce wines aside from those made at either of their associated Domaines (Robert Sirugue, Michel Noëllat). This beautiful rosé is a delightful result of their fruitful union.
