Château de Lancyre Rosé Pic Saint Loup 2014

A 13.5% alcohol richer Rosé blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Cinsault, grown on clay/limestone-based soils and made using a mix of press must and tank-bled wines. Red-salmon-pink in color, bright and clear with good legs; dry, medium-bodied with freshly balanced acidity and very light phenolics. Bigger, richer, darker rosé that is almost in the chillable red range. Riper red fruits with minimal citrus and more richness and texture in the mouth, but with plenty of mineral-earth to give it definition and character. If rosé can be serious, this is. A great choice that pairs well with dry hams, olives, nuts and potato chips as well as richer seafood soups and stews, and even roasted chicken or duck served with a green salad. This is a year-in, year-out personal favorite. BearScore: 93
