LES FIEFS D'AUPENAC 2020 AC Saint-Chinian-Roquebrun
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CAVE DE ROQUEBRUN
A REPEAT of the recommended 2020 (**+) that was last released on April 16, 2022. This blend of 70% Roussanne and 30% Grenache Blanc has a very pale straw colour. It has a dry, mineral-driven nose with bright, lemon-apple aromas and a touch of yellow plum. Itís very dry, medium bodied and nicely textured with lemon-apple flavours and a lingering, unoaked, slightly chalky, lifted finish. It would be perfect with seafood, especially oysters. It has 13.5% alcohol and less than 2 g/l residual sugar with a NEW lot number L22325 on the lower part of the glass bottle. CSPC 26572
