Reserve Mont Redon Rose Cotes du Rhone 2016
PLCB Code# 78831
“Vivid pink. Bright and energetic on the nose, which is sharpened and given a spicy edge by a suggestion of white pepper. Taut red currant, bitter cherry and blood orange flavors open up slowly on the back half and show good clarity. Lingers quite nicely on the finish, leaving a subtle floral note behind.” 89 Points Vinous June 2017
Why this is good value: This goes against my typical don’t-drink-rose-from-last-year rule but after assurances from Randy at the PLCB store, I dove in – the price point helped to facilitate my gamble… The gamble pays off in this case: Nice Cotes du Rhone (CdR) color and flavor (strawberries, cherries) that is full enough to be rewarding while clean enough to qualify as a thirst-quenching warm weather rose. Buy a case and drink it all summer!
