Wine: Clos Roche Blanche 2008
Region: Touraine, Loire Valley, France
This rose is full of berry on the nose that disappears when you drink it. In the berry’s place, there’s a citrus flavor that tastes like Fresca, except it’s more pungent yet also more grounded. It’s a velvety wine that is quirky, bright, and stony. I don’t particularly like Fresca; I love this.
