In the october edition of the Wine Enthusiast, the two rosé wines of Château La Sauvageonne were awarded 90+. Below are the tasting notes.
Lauren Buzzeo :"This interesting and complex rosé—made from 65% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre, 7% Vermentino and 3% Viognier—is aged for six months in oak. The resulting wine is a cellar-worthy selection that boasts upfront notes of toasted spice, lemon custard, vanilla bean and ripe red berries. The oak influence currently dominates the plush and generous palate, while the creamy texture and lingering smoky spice are enticingly decadent. While you can enjoy this rich wine now, give it some time for the oak to mellow and further integrate with the fruit; drink now–2017."
Lauren Buzzeo : "A beautiful pale-pink color, this rosé made from 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault and 20% Syrah offers a gorgeous mélange of upfront fruit aromas, including red cherry, strawberry, peach and underripe mango. Hints of sweet pea and garrigue mingle with the ripe fruit core on the medium-bodied palate. The lightly creamy mouthfeel is lifted by bright final acidity, finishing snappy and fresh."
