The bouquet is not very expressive but shows some rose buds. On the palate some small red fruits, nicely dry with pleasant acidity and bitterness. Very harmonious and tasty. The Rosé fans around the table were very enthousiastic.
Not really my style. A bit more savory, meaty than I prefer for a summer quaffer. But, given that, it's very nicely balanced at present, with acids nicely in check against abundant fruit. 90 points for what it is. This would have been better served with a thoughtful food pairing. It is not one for a 80 degree day on the boat.
