Chateau Gassier Le Pas du Moine Rose 2019
Amazing as an aperitif, Le Pas du Moine Rose also matches perfectly with Mediterranean gastronomy and Asian cuisine (sushi, spring rolls or stir-fried beef).
Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Brilliant salmon skin. Highly perfumed, mineral-accented aromas of fresh red berries, citrus and pit fruits and a suave floral note. Silky and focused in the mouth, offering juicy nectarine, strawberry and blood orange flavors that show fine clarity and tension. Deepens on a very long, lively finish that leaves a repeating floral note behind. Drinking window: 2021-2024." Jun 2021
Wine Enthusiast: "This is a rich, raspberry-flavored wine, full of vibrant acidity and fruitiness. Freshness contrasts with the wine's ripeness and generous structure. Drink from late 2020." July 2020
Winery: "Pale lychee fruit color; intense nose playing with white floral and exotic fruit notes. In the mouth, the first impression is fresh and round, supported by citrus fruit delicacy (guava and grapefruit), with a lingering finish."
