Saumur Rose Reserve de Vignerons 2019
100% Cabernet Franc from the chalky tuffeau of Saumur of the Loire Valley, this remains one of my perennial favorites every vintage. At an appetizing 12.5% alcohol, this rosé is lovely for its creamy and juicy strawberry fruit, its tangy acids, its big mouthfeel, and its rich and balanced texture. The fruit is complete from the nose, across the palate and long onto its minty finish. A rosé for all seasons but really seems to summon the sun while tasting it in May.
Wine review by Nicholas Livingston, May 2013
The better cuts of lamb or beef. Grilled tuna or salmon. Ham and hamburgers. Pasta and pizza. Oh yeah, eggplant dishes.
