2011 Le Cirque Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes Rosé
Le Cirque is crafted by the modern and very progressive Les Vignerons de Tautavel in the village of Tautavel. Aptly named after the vast, ampitheater-shaped bowl of vineyards stretching north towards Vingrau, the wines represent phenomenal values and perfectly reflect the rugged, wind-swept terroir on which they are grown. Le Cirque's rosť (a blend of Grenache Noir, Syrah and Grenache Gris) is intensely colored, with great freshness and spicy strawberry, watermelon and sage aromatics. This dry rosť is excellent on its own, or paired with charcuterie, seafood or salads.
