Gérard Bertrand 2016 Cote des Roses (Languedoc)







Gérard Bertrand 2016 Cote des Roses (Languedoc), $13.99-$16.99, 91 points, poured a lovely crystalline peach-textured color.
Aromatic strawberry, pear, peach and a floral component were excellent.

Appropriately light and acidic.
Strawberry and chamomile flavors trailed deep into the long finish of white pepper, watermelon rind, jasmine, and a spot on 12.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my Buffalo wings, blue-cheese, and celery.
The bottom of the bottle is supposed to be a rose, but I thought it looked more like lava.
Varietals were Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah.

  1. I think I have seen this wine in the store...did not know that the bottom of the bottle was like that though. It's sort of cool, I think.

    1. VG: This was the first of the French Rosés, and what an entrance it was!
