2018 Alain de la Treille Le Rosé - 91 PTS - GOLD MEDAL - TASTINGS

tastings 2019 gold"Brilliant salmon orange color. Interesting aromas and flavors of sweet pickle relish and spiced berries and plantains with a silky, bright, dry-yetfruity light-to-medium body and a delightful, medium-length finish imparting nuances of watermelon, Bing cherry, and nut brittle with a suggestion of oak flavor. A uniquely flavorful rose with a great savory character."

iwinereview"Revealing hints of watermelon and cotton candy on the nose, this Loire Valley rosé is crisp on the attack with decent concentration of red berry fruit on the palate. There’s nice purity of flavor and a lingering finish. A blend of 40% Gamay, 40% Cabernet Franc, 20% Pinot Noir. - Don Winkler"

iwinereview"A blend of 40% Cabernet Franc, 40% Gamay, and 20% Pinot Noir, this rose reveals a light salmon pink color and very faint red cherry skin on the nose with floral notes. It exhibits a hint of sweetness on the attack with red berry fruit on the mid-palate and a nice lingering finish of red berry/cherry notes."

vinous logo"Light lurid orange. Ripe red berries and tangerine on the nose and in the mouth. In a smooth, warm, open-knit style; a hint of white pepper adds finishing cut and spiciness."

wa300"Spicy, herbal and peppery, with lots of floral and strawberry nuances, the 2015 Le Rose is medium-bodied, supple, and pretty on the palate, with solid acidity and texture. It won't be for everyone given the herbal edge, but there's plenty to like here. - Jeb Dunnuck"
