Sink the pink!

This disproves my theory that all rosé is just rosé - pleasant and carefree but indistinguishable and innocuous. Indeed, I commend Château Vignelaure on creating a genuinely interesting wine in a difficult vintage that, for a rosé, is even fine!

Château Vignelaure, Côteaux d'Aix en Provence, 2012
Pale salmon pink colour with a fine, well balanced palette - spicy (white pepper), and tart with soft strawberry flavours. Good length and a strong finish of strawberries and lemons with even a hint of mango?! Provençal bliss in a glass! 2.5* 8/ 10
