THE CLASSIC RHONE ROSE.
4.5 STARS 91/100 Sam Kim Wine Orbit.
This is a lovely Rosé expression from one of the greatest French producers. Chapoutier have been making wine since 1808 and remain at the very forefront of Rhone wine production. This sharply priced Rosé has long been a favourite with Kiwi wine lovers with it's refreshing palate and bright flavours of summer fruits. The 2017 is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault. It's dry but with a juicy mid-palate weight. As Sam Kim says "The palate is light and juicy, offering vibrant fruit flavours and fine texture, beautifully supported by crisp acidity." It comes highly recommended.
