BRUT PRESTIGE SPARKLING ROSÉ Salon de Provence, IGP Mediterranean, Provence, France
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer RIVAROSE
Assessed from a bottle supplied by the agent with no lot number to be found anywhere on the bottle or shipping case! Bright extremely pale pink colour. Fairly attractive, slightly spicy, ripe strawberry nose. Fairly dry, medium-light to light bodied tangy, fresh, ripe cherry-raspberry-strawberry flavours with a lingering, tangy, bright, lightish finish with gentle effervescence. Ready-to-drink. This fresh, easy-to-drink, rather tasty blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache has 12% alcohol and according to the LCBO website 12 g/L residual sugar. It last appeared in Vintages (not tasted) on February 8, 2020 at $18.95. Intense, suggest that you ignore the two-year-old seriously excessive,meaningless 95-point tasting note appearing in the Vintages Catalogue. CSPC 515288

TASTING NOTE: On the nose, it exudes soft, subtle aromas of freshly sliced apricot, ripe raspberry and almond nougat. The palate is restrained. Sheer. With dry, airy flavours of raspberry and struck steel, toasted meringue and grapefruit zest that linger on the finish. There are bubbles too, but they're small. Delicate. A steady stream of tiny beads that add a mousse-like mouthfeel. The aromas, flavours and texture coax you back sip after sip much the same way a great fragrance draws you in again and again - like a quiet secret.
