Domaine La Croix Belle N° 7 IGP Cotes de Thongue 2015 Rosé, $13.99-$16.99, 90 points, was a Pink-Salmon Caviar color.
Aromas of strawberry, pome blossoms, and kiwi were good.
Light, almost early palate thin, but good acidity and developing Cavendish and Harvey watermelon, strawberry, grapefruit, and faint black cherry fruit drop afterburner flavors made for a delicious aperitif and pairing partner with my roasted chicken with Chilean asparagus tips, buttered mash potatoes, and butternut squash.
Finished well on ginger, a floral vibe, and a potent 13.5% alcohol.
Varietals were Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache Noir, Carignan, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot.
