Serving and food pairings
This is a Cuvée to be served in a flute with a fairly wide goblet at a temperature of 8 to 10 degrees and very appealing during a romantic dinner.
A salad of tomatoes and strawberries in balsamic vinegar or, rather turned towards the sea, it will deserve the company of fatty fish in sauce, salmon or cod, or sushi. You can also try it on a dessert with very little sweetness.
The visual refers to the color of the salmon. It is nuanced with slight red reflections and offers us, with a very fine and shy effervescence, a harmonious and very classic general presentation.
The first approach is very appetizing, and we discover aromas of strawberries and saffron. Later the expression widens with gourmet aromas of marshmallow, grenadine on a very sweet animal background, meat juice and musk. You can feel the limestone too. After ten minutes of aeration, a floral bouquet emerges with a touch of strawberry juice. It is a nose combining characteristics of finesse and complexity. The air tightness is excellent, very mineral and fruity.
The initial impact on the palate is smooth and well accompanied by a melted effervescence. The good freshness of the wine quickly became apparent, tempered by a fairly marked dosage, but without excess. The body of the wine contributes to the good harmony of the whole, each element finding its place perfectly, from the initial impact to the finish. There is a hint of tannin, but nothing that prevents you from appreciating the smooth texture of this Rosé.
It is very long, around eight to ten seconds of persistence, and marked by aromas of lemons, cinnamon and cherries. It faints without make-up, in a clear and tart manner.
