Lieu Dit Cocagne Coteaux de Vendomois Rose 2009

Member Review by adamguti:

i'm after a case of this wine, it's that good. i get tons of grapefruit on the nose---clean citrus with a touch of perfume---and on the palate. sharp on the tongue and round in the mouth, meaty and juicy, bright and lively and exciting in a way that usually only reds are. though it's definitely a very dry rose, it still has an incredibly sweet finish that at first was a bit overwhelming. but as i drank on, the crispness and minerality took over the sweet, and seduced me into another glass. and another. (snooth claims it's a gamay, but my understanding is it's made from the pineau d'aunis (also known as chenin noir). are these three all the same???) pricewise: it's a STEAL. you don't find wine this amazing AND this cheap everyday.
