Brun, Roger: Rosé Romance (base 2013)

Base 2013. Made of 100% Pinot Noir. Very special amber almost rusty color. Lovely nose of dried roses, sun dried tomatos, pomegrenate, forest strawberry liqueur, black pepper, crunchy baked baguette, new leather. The mouthfeel is focussed and vinous. On the palate you get crunchy pear, cherry, the leather from the nose and a bitter touch of squid ink, saffron and cloves. It looks cute but this is a serious wine with an almost Pessac-Léognan spiciness. This wine begs for confit de canard.
