Château Val Joanis Grenache Blend Côtes du Luberon Rosé 2009

Member Review by LCC201:

Beautiful light orange colour with a medium intensity nose of red fruit and citrus. On the palate, very dry with fruity hints of strawberry, red currant and lemon zest. Easy sipping wine, good on its own or with a light summer salad.
