"The 2019 Cotes Du Rhone La Dame Rousse Rose offers another level of elegance and purity as well as complexity. Giving up notions of ripe strawberries, cherry blossoms, white flowers, and a kiss of minerality, it’s a beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, incredibly balanced effort that actually has a touch more richness than the Tavel, although both are rich, textured rosés geared for the table. As with the Tavel, drink this beauty any time over the coming year or so." (JD)

Winery Notes:
The wine is made from 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 20% Cinsault, 10% Carignan. 20 year-old vines.

Deep pink, slightly orange color typical of Mordoree rose wines. Aromas of crystallized oranges and cherries, hints of aniseed. Very round palate, fresh and a long finish.

Food pairing:
cold meats and delicatessen, fowl, white meats, grilled lamb with Provence herbs, fish soup, fried fish, pastas, pizzas and all Asian dishes.
