Ferraton Père & Fils, Samorëns Côtes du Rhône 2017, Rhone, France
Tasting Note: A Côtes du Rhône rosé that combines minerality and the freshness one enjoys in a white wine with the body and depth one appreciates in a red wine in an oh-so-wonderful shade of rosé.
Medium-intensity salmon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus intensity nose of freshly-picked-summer strawberry, red cherry, orange citrus peel, morning blossom, with notes of quince and chamomile.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied Côtes du Rhône rosé delivers flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and a mix of tart, ripened, red fruit.
The wine has a steely body but is punctuated by lively moments across the whole of the flavor length completing with a medium plus finish.
My kind of rosé.
Bottle Note: In the beginning, there was a region: the Rhône Valley. In 1946, there was a man with passion: Jean Ferraton. Today, our team is committed to ensuring the continuation of the knowledge. With the greatest respect for the “terroir” and the vine.
