CH FONTSAINTE Corbières Rosé Gris de Gris 2020 75cl
A benchmark rosé from this region and a cult wine across the pond, having been imported by one of the USA's top merchants since 1978. It's made in the saignée method whereby it's made from run-off juice from a tank of pressed grapes giving added complexity and a touch of tannin. But the wine is also made from over 80% Grenache Gris, resulting in a very pale onion skin colour.
There are summer suits here but also aromas of white flowers and minerality. This is a very versatile wine, happy to play the role of crowd pleaser but serious enough to serve with food. One of our favourite discoveries of the last year.
