Type: Rosé (100% Cabernet Sauvigon)
Country: France–Bordeaux–Cotes de Bourg
This is a wine that was suggested to me by Les at the Villa St. Simon (Blaye) for my “Finding Value in Bordeaux” event at the London Business School on 8 MAR 2013. This particular event focused on the Right Bank of Bordeaux and it was a pleasure to start the evening with this bottle. It is a simple, easy-to-drink rose wine that the guests were pleased with.
(Apologies for the picture that I have uploaded. This particular bottle was placed in a bucket of ice and water for a long time, so the label began to peel off.)
Clear, medium pink.
Clean, light aromas of strawberry and peach.
Dry, medium acidity, low tannin. Light bodied. Similar flavours to the aromas above. Medium length finish.
Good, ready to drink now (not intended for aging).
