2011 Chateau Puech-Haut Tete de Belier Rose

Had this wine accompanying a grilled turkey breast with roasted potatoes but also with dessert. It was versatile enough to go well with both dishes and I actually enjoyed it a lot. Ladies really loved it. Made from 100% Mourvedre.

2011 Chateau Puech-Haut Tete de Belier Rose

Light pink salmon color. Really fresh nose with mild sweetness, candied strawberry, ripe cherry, red apple, pink grapefruit and floral. Medium plus body, vibrant, lively on the palate, mouth-watering and very refreshing. Medium plus long finish, with lingering pink grapefruit and floral flavors. This is by far the best Rose I had so far and I am really no Rose fan I can tell you that. As good as a Rose can get. 13.5% alc (89-90/100)

    Have you ever tried Sancerre rosé? I don’t like ‘fruit bomb’ rosé either, but the very dry minerally rosé from Sancerre can be marvelous, especially on a hot summer day🙂

      I have not tried any Sancerre Rose but now you made me very curious. I will seek them. I know what you mean with hot summer days and fresh wines.🙂

        My favorite one is from Roger & Didier Raimbault (http://www.raimbault-sancerre.com/), their rosé is a prize winner almost every year and is only 7 euros. But not sure how easy it is to get, since I always buy it directly from the winery🙂
