2010 Les Vignerons de Fontès "Prieuré Saint-Hippolyte" Languedoc Rosé

SKU #1071842

This 2010 is so good it is scary. Not as heavy as the 2009 and better balanced than that vintage. This will blow you away. 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache make for a chewy, medium-boded wine, with strawberry and cassis notes and a fresh, intense, slightly herbal note on the palate. Saignée method. Lovely with southern French cuisine. A must buy--by the case.

This Gem has become one of our favorite wines in the store. Produced from Syrah (77%) and Grenache, the perfumed nose is charged with strawberries and blackberries, which carry over to a wonderfully fresh, incredibly distinct, spicy clove-like blackberry set of flavors. It finishes with a clean, mouthwatering finish. Try it with shellfish! I already bought a case and may buy another as Anderson, the Bean, Eby and Rizzo have insisted that I do for our enjoyment. 11%-14% ABV.
Drink from 2011 to 2013

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.
