CUVÉE TRADITION ROSÉ 2020 AP Costières de Nîmes
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer MAS DES BRESSADES
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. I am a fan of dry Rhone rosé and this Costières-de-Nîmes offers very attractive, ready-to-enjoy value. Bright light day-glo pink colour, the nose shows nicely - slightly spicy, faintly honeyed, fresh, plum-apple-citrus aromas with some hints of peach y-apricot along with minerally notes. Dry, medium-light bodied, very slightly spicy, fresh, crisp, ripe, plum-red-cherry-apple flavours with an unoaked, faintly chalky, lingering finish. This blend is usually 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Cinsault and has 13.5% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L20358 which suggests that it was bottled on December 23, 2020. It could have almost passed as a Rose Nouveau. The recommended 2019 (**/**+) was released on September 5, 2020 at $16.95. CSPC 950576
