Cuvee Jean Paul Gascogne rosé

Cuvee Jean Paul Gascogne rosé Posted on July 16, 2018Leave a comment

This is a remarkable rosé for the price.  Mid salmon in colour, it is a well made, dry blend of Tannat, Cabernet franc and Merlot. Juicy red fruit and floral perfume wafts from the glass.  There is some lavender in there as well, all the evocative scents early summer. It is a good match for a French inspired salad, or some light tapas while sitting around enjoying the company of friends.  Or an easy choice as a ‘glass after work’.
