K&L Notes

This is a fresh, snappy berry-driven rosé with delicate floral notes. It's bright and crisp, delicious with or without food. Domaine les Pins has been family run for five generations. They are a small artisanal producer that oversees every stage of the production from start to finish. They have roughly 30 hectares of Cabernet Franc spread out through the Bourgueil and St-Nicolas de Bourgueil regions. They practice sustainable farming, and each and every vine gets singular attention throughout the year. Vines of an average age of 25 years are planted in sandy, clay and gravel soils. Cabernet Franc makes for an excellent rosé. Not only does it bring an array of new flavors into the pink world, but the wine has depth and weight that a Grenache or Pinot based rosé could never achieve. This lovely little wine has aromas of fresh raspberry and white pepper with a subtle presence of culinary herbs in the background. On the palate it has great weight and a stronger red fruit presence than you might expect. The note of white pepper persists and carries through to the crisp and clean finish.

As soon as rosé season begins, I seek the one that stands out from the crowd, and this year it is this must-have Cabernet Franc from the Loire Valley. The red berry fruit and hints of wild herbs combined with delectable complexity and texture make this a stunning rosé gastronomique that pairs with practically any dish: chicken, fish, steak, lots of cheese, salad, anything. Or, if you're not hungry, that's OK. This is wonderful on its own, too.
