La Galiniere, a Delicate Rosé


Love this rosé from Bouches-de-Rhone, the mouth of the famous river, not too far from the Mediterranean. Chateau de la Galiniere rose 2007 255A simple yet classic label, with an appealing salmon pink color, that seems to whisper “summer is here”. The nose is very subtle, no outbursts of fruit but rather light brushstrokes of meadow flowers and a hint of nuts. The palate is bone dry and equally delicate, very light but full of character. Roses and red pamplemousse predominate. Acidity high and very refreshing, reverberates on the tongue in a good, lasting finish with blood orange rind. This rose stands really well on its own or accompanying a plate of seafood salad.
