"Intense pink color with bright salmon reflections. Lively, round and fruity, with a soft touch. The freshness and energy of the wine perfectly balance the semi-dry character. Raspberries, strawberries, cherries, and white peaches aromas. A bouquet of summer fruits."
"Dry rose wine has always been one of my favorites for something that has a bit more depth than white, but is not nearly as heavy as red. This 2009 from the Loire Vally has aromas of cherry, plum skin and raspberries. The palate is crisp and very refreshing with violets, rose petals, bing cherry and strawberry. Mouthwatering and almost thirst-quenching. A great food pairing from fresh fish to smoked meats. Drink very chilled."
