Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CHÂTEAU D'AQUÉRIA
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. Bright light reddish colour. Intense, slightly spicy, ripe, red- apple-plum nose with some mineral notes. Dry, medium bodied, nicely structured, tangy, spicy, ripe apple-plum flavours with a lingering, bright, fresh, still youthful, frais de bois finish. Versatile - would work well with salmon and even roast chicken. Perfect for a Sunday brunch. The Château d’Aqueria dates back to 1595 and Louis Joseph d’Aqueria. Now for three generations dating back to 1919, the Olivier family owns and runs Château d’Aqueria. The AOC was established in 1936 and the entire Southern Rhone commune of Tavel is dedicated 100% to Rosé - no reds or whites.
