Early August already…where has the time gone? However, it’s definitely still rosé weather for most of us so take advantage while you can. Today we have another excellent one, this time from Bordeaux.

The 2010 Chateau Timberlay Bordeaux Clairet begins with a very bright and fruity aroma of strawberry, raspberry and grape. The best way to describe it is that it features lots and lots of pure fruit. That continues when tasting this sweet and easy to drink wine. This is a wine for those who like a little more sugar in their rosé but is still nowhere near White Zin level. The fruit is a bit tangy and tart when tasting. It ends with a little zest on the good finish.
