2018 Domaine de la Noblaie "Goutte de Rose" Chinon Rosé

SKU #1425046

93 points Winedoctor.com: "This is 100% Cabernet Franc, vinified in stainless steel, and it is already in bottle, very sensibly under screwcap. It kicks off with a beautifully fresh and dusty nose, showing subtle peach and strawberry fruits, lightly dusted with minerals. The palate feels appropriately fresh, tense, pure and cool, with a polished style, an ebullient fruit character streaked with mineral and acid veins. It closes with a very fine and peppery flourish in the finish. All in all a very attractive rosé. From my first Loire 2018 report." (02/2019)

It's never too late in any season to enjoy a good rose and sometimes its even better to wait a few extra months from their release to let the wines come together better in the bottle for optimal drinking. The Noblaie is one such rose that goes beyond and was probably best suited for late season (read - fall/winter) drinking anyways. As it is wholly Cabernet Franc, the background flavors of red fruits, herbs and spices make an ideal foil for the roasted poultry and heartier dishes of the late in the year seasons. You'll be pleased to drink this now and it should easily carry you through to next year's rose season.

Soft and beautiful nose with strawberries and cherries over creme fraiche. On the palate there’s plenty of crisp, refreshing acidity, and resonating cherry tones. Airy and soft. I’m tempted to call the texture on this “fluffy.” Perfect for anyone looking to branch out from our perennial Provence rosés.

Beautifully executed rosé. All the floral notes and bright fruit I love in rosé but without losing any zest and refreshing cut. A pure wine with a soft texture but crunchy acidity in the finish.

The nose of this wine is bright, very tight with hints of forest fruits. Very pale in color while on the palate the wine shows breadth and a bit of grip, almost Tavel like, while the flavors have more fruit in the back end than up front. The wine shows very good acidity and excellent length I think an excellent wine for food this isn’t a poolside sipper, it’s more serious.

This wine is a delight for warm fall evenings we have here in California. It's a delicate wine with subtle stone fruit (yellow cherries and under-ripe peaches) and elegant dried floral aromas. This wine is a dry, crisp and elegant way to celebrate the end of summer as well as anticipating our delicious Dungeness crab season just around the corner!
