We're just a few days away from #LanguedocDay on May 26 and we're back today with another excellent pick from the area. Today's wine comes from Chateau de Lascaux, surrounded by the signature wild herbs (garrigue) of the region and named after the limestone specific to its vineyards.
The 2016 Chateau de Lascaux Rosé Garrigue begins with pleasant aromas of cherry, berry, a little tomato plant and light garrigue notes just like the name suggests. Tasting the wine reveals a fresh and delicious dry rosé with a zippy mouthfeel. Light-bodied and with good acidity, the fruit turns a bit tart with lemon, lime, orange peel and more. A little white pepper as well as some chalky minerality lead into the dry finish which features some lingering berry and lime notes with a touch of tropical fruit. This is a really excellent dry rosé!
