Rose d'Anjou. Chateau de la Roulerie 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Delicate and with an almost vegetal floral note on the nose over spicy, astringent red berry fruit that shows a hint of juniper. A bit obviously sweet in the mouth with plenty of balancing acidity to make the orange edged red cherry and lightly plummy fruit rather attractive. The finish shows sweetness but it's balanced by a lovely vein of bitter orange/ blood orange peel that really keeps this lively. Easy to drink on it's own and a wonderful match for lightly spicy food. 88pts

This is smoky and spicy on the nose with a nice tobacco edge to the dark berry fruit. Noticeably sweet, but at the same time with a supportive spice of acidity. This is plump and juicy with cranberry and strawberry fruit. The herbal element here adds some nice complexity and the fruit turns all sweet and watermelon-like on the moderately long, somewhat sticky finish. This needs spicy Asian-influenced food to show its best. 86pts

Big ripe red fruit on the nose... very ripe strawberries on the palate, followed by an interesting burnt caramel finish... prolly why many call this CANDY! For me, a great apertif or sipper... beware... easy to overchill or underchill.... very small window of optimal temperature IMO.

New to the rose game. This one was a little to sweet for me. Maybe I had my mind set that it was going to be to sweet. Good flavor profile of strawberry and cherry and very refreshing.

This wine is pure fun. Great aroma, earthy and fruity, with a hint of asparagus. Definitely on the sweet side. Good as an aperitif.

The nose was reticent with hints of cherry and sweet florals. On the palate, it showed a great balance of sweet versus tart with enough acidity to keep it juicy and clean. Flavors of rhubarb and hints of medicinal cherry formed up on the palate and gave way to lingering notes of hard candy on the finish.

Salty sweet caramel on the nose. Dark berry when poured. Red berry fruit with hints of darker fruit. It's pretty sweet on the palate with a fairly thick mouthfeel. Lingonberry. Candy notes. It lingers long and is more decadent than refreshing. Weak acid. Lacks balance for me. Well suited for dessert. 6/20/12

A ripe, friendly style, with quince, anise and pear tartine notes backed by nicely buried acidity on the accessible finish. Drink now.

Light and crisp with fresh apricot green apple and lime notes the Roulerie is a great value for Vouvray and Saumur drinkers. Terrific with Asian cuisine this wine also works really well with most white fish chicken or pasta dishes as well.

Cabernet Franc in a light and pleasing style, with good fruit concentration. Very much a food wine, and also one which is very happy to be served chilled, when it becomes very versatile and can partner many dishes that would often be partnered by white.
