“Light pink colour. Fruity and floral on the nose with some subtle herbal spiced elements too. The palate is long and lively, with good intensity of strawberry fruit. It is mouthwatering and nicely integrated with a soft strawberry sweetness that lingers on the tongue. Enjoyable and easy drinking. Vegan and organic. From eight generations of winemakers from Entre-Deux-Mers. A blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec.” Decanter 90 Points
According to Decanter, Bordeaux winemakers are bringing the AOC’s rosé wines back into the spotlight. “Bordeaux Rosés showcase the freshness and drinkability of their white counterparts offering light and delicate berry-fruited wines perfect for warm weather and alfresco dining. Wines can comprise Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec and come in a range of pink hues offering floral, summer fruit and citrus flavours, some with hints of spice….
It helps that these styles excel, offering immediate consumption with optimal drinking windows between one and three years. They also have wide versatility when it comes to food pairing making excellent apéritifs and matching seafood, white meats and summer salads excellently…Given the quality on show during this tasting there seems to be no better time than now to seek these wines out.”
Les Hauts de Lagarde Bordeaux 90 Point French Organic Rosé
Les Hauts de Lagarde Bordeaux Rosé exudes crushed fresh herbs, ripe strawberry, and raspberry, sour cherry, cranberry, on the nose. At first sip, Les Hauts rosé is aromatic with notes of dried thyme and savory highlighted with ripe strawberries, raspberries, and pomegranate. The wine is juicy and fresh, dry, with medium body. Its zesty Meyer lemon tinged acidity refreshes and plays well with lighter fare. It’s perfect with succulent seafood salads, poached chicken breast served with steamed spring vegetables, a light and airy cheese souffle, or a simple wood-fired pesto and buffalo mozzarella pizza.
