This Reb’L Côtes du Roussillon Rosé wine by Domaine Rety in the South of France, is made from a blend of 90% Grenache with 10% Syrah grapes grown using biodynamic viticulture and picked by traditional hand picking into small crates.
The 2017 vintage reviewed her is in fact the very first certified organic wine coming out of Domaine Rety, after several years of the estate going through the legal vineyard certification process.
Overall Review Notes & Tasting Impressions
A French Rosé wine featuring a bright and shiny, slightly-pale a pink salmon color, and a lively and fruity aromatic profile with dominant pomegranate, grapefruit and lime notes.
The palate is very dry and crisp, with a distinctive liveliness and zestiness due to its mineral feel and delicate phenolics making you salivate to the finish.
Pungent notes of fresh strawberry combined with juicy lime and ripe lemon, bright fennel and aromatics scents of aromatic herbs (garrique) make for a food-friendly rosé full of zingy life and joyfulness.
Very balanced overall on a dry and acidic backbone, the estery oily texture provides a seamless pleasant tasting impression.
A very well crafted Southern-French rosé wine, to be enjoyed at any season, but of course greatly suitable for pairing with summery dishes, barbecues and delicate salads.
