Michel Chapoutier, Les Vignes de Bila-Haut Rosé 2016, IGP Pays D’Oc, France
Tasting Note: Bila-Haut was the first producer in France to print their labels in braille – not that you need to know that to love them because they also produce consistently quality wines that you should never hesitate to pickup.
Beautiful, medium-intensity salmon in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of strawberry, blossom, peach stone fruit, red cherry and lemon zest.
On the palate this dry, medium-bodied rosé shows bright, chalky red fruit supported by medium-plus acidity.
The wine is crisp, clean and straightforward with some notes of concentration in the mid-palate.
Perfect for backyard porch sitting.
Bottle Note: Rousillon, a land of legend and history. A place of contrasts, too, much as Domaine de Bila-Haut. This wine is fresh and well-balanced with citrus aromas and is a perfect match for summer recipes.
