From the winery:
"Beautiful light pink color with a nose of elegant fragrances of raspberries and lime. In the mouth: full and mellow. Harmony and freshness prevail.Summer may be winding down, but that doesn't mean you have to stop drinking rosé. Probably the biggest eye opener for me over the last 6 months or so is just how much delicious rosé is out there. And today we have one more, this time from Bordeaux.
This wine is an easy-drinking wine as an aperitif or for any light summer meal. It can also be paired with salads, fish, chicken, Italian food or even Chinese and Indian meals.
The 2010 Le Rosé de Clarke Baron Edmond de Rothschild Bordeaux Rosé begins with an enticing bouquet of raspberry, strawberry, light lime and floral aromas. Tasting the wine reveals good fruit flavors plus a bit of spice and sea salt mineral notes. It also a nice lively mouthfeel and good acidity. The fruit turns a bit tart and zesty on the finish while the sea salt minerality lingers for quite awhile. A fresh, refreshing and delicious wine that is great on its own or an easy match for lots of different foods. We matched it up with some grilled bratwurst and it was quite nice! This wine is also kosher.
