Barton & Guestier, Passeport Cotes de Provence Rosé 2015, Provence, France
Tasting Note: Another proof point of high-quality Provencal rosé winemaking.
Salmon in color this wine has a nose of red cherry and strawberry with hints of grapefruit and lemon citrus.
On the palate the dry, light-to-medium-bodied rosé is soft with flavors of crisp early-summer red fruit mixed with orange zest.
An enjoyable straight forward rose with lots of young, just-ripened, early-summer fruit.
Bottle Note: Grenache (50%), Cinsault (30%), Syrah (20%). In 1775, thanks to their friend Thomas Jefferson, future president and ambassador in France, Barton & Guestier became the 1st wine shipped to introduce French wines in the USA. Today Barton & Guestier continues bringing the best of the French vineyards to the U.S. B&G, your passport to French wine. Blooming nose of fresh red fruits and delicate flowers. Elegant and fruity palate with a long and pleasant finish. Mediterranean dishes, fish, BBQ, salads.
