2008 La Gatte Rosé, Bordeaux

SKU #1050108

By now, doesn't everyone know that France is home to the best dry rosé on the market? It may, however, come as a surprise to discover that more than a few of these wonderful pink wines hail from Bordeaux. The La Gatte comes from a saignee (bleeding) of the finest Merlot parcels. Free run juice is drawn off only three hours after fruit comes in from the field. Indigenous yeast is used, and the result is some the purest Merlot you will ever sample! Typically rich in alcohol, this rosé is vinified totally dry, and it makes a wonderful year-round accompaniment to shellfish, white meats, smoked meat and fish, or as an aperitif.

This full-bodied rosé is full of ripe strawberry fruit and balanced nicely with a refreshing snap. A perfect wine for the fridge door, it makes a delightful aperitif as well as a good partner for salads or lighter mid-week fare.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
