Château Moyau Rosé Blend Coteaux du Languedoc la Clape 2007
Editorial Reviews for Château Moyau Rosé Blend Coteaux du Languedoc la Clape
This opens with quite spicy and gamy notes on the nose before revealing sweet strawberry and pomegranate fruits touched with a hint of Chinese 5-spice powder. A nicely styled yet fairly rich rose with lovely structure. Just a touch of tannin, bright acids support intense, slightly herbal and leathery red fruits. Rich baked strawberry fruits with hints of plum and apple fill the mouth and lead to a crisp, snappy finish. A solid wine, big enough for grilled or fried chicken but still delicate enough for even lighter far. 89pts
This delightful wine will transport you to the summer in the south of France. Made from a blend of 50% Grenache Noir, 30% Cinsault and 20% Syrah, the 2007 Rosé from Château Moyau is crisp, dry and refreshing. Intense salmon trending to a pink grapefruit color in the glass, the wine exhibits strawberry and ripe raspberry flavors with notes of rose florals. The wine’s fruitiness is balanced by its lively acidity, while its terroir is revealed in subtle mineral nuances. Perfect on its own on a hot summer day, this versatile wine is a natural with hors devours and also pairs well with BBQ, grilled fish with sweet-tangy salsas, and most Caribbean or Mexican-inspired foods.
Pungent cherry aromas pave the way for strawberry and cherry flavors, a bit of spice and cranberry, and a hint of medicine on the finish.
Very mineral and crisp. Well balanced and dry with elegant mouth-coating almonds and subtle strawberry.
Nice deep bronzed cherry hue. Sweet Maraschino cherry flavors with some watermelon flavors on the backend. This is a classic rose that finishes on melon and strawberry flavors. Would work well with quiche, or moules frites on a hot summers day
Delicate mouthfeel with grapefruit, mango, and peach flavors, very smooth and long-lasting, not sweet, and not too acidic.
