Tasting Set Includes:
- Cote des Roses Rose
A wine to celebrate the Mediterranean Art of Living! Its originality lies in its original rose-shaped bottle, created by a young designer from Ecole Boulle. This cuvée boasts a lovely yellow color with golden tints. It is fresh. A soft, pale, brilliant pink with bluish tints developing over time towards more orangey nuances. The bouquet releases aromas of summer fruits, cassis and redcurrant. Floral notes of rose along with hints of grapefruit complete the picture. The finish is fresh, offering notes of candy. On the palate the impression is fresh and full, with great aromatic persistence and balance.
- M. Chapoutier La Combe Pilate
Pale gold. Aromas of grapefruit and slightly toasted almonds with hints of bergamont and linden trees. The palate has a broad entry and generous on the mid-palate. The citrus nose compliments hints of linden and soft spice. This all give way to a long-lingering and savory finish.
- Gerard Bertrand Chateau L'Hospitalet Grand Vin Rouge
A bright, ruby-red color. The intense nose carries predominant aromas of spices and red fruit (strawberry). On the palate, the fine, silky tannins enhance the fruity freshness of the wine.
