Languedoc rosé from Fonacalieu
I asked #1 child for her opinion of the bottle: she liked its non-conformist "stocky, masculine profile" but disdained the "overly feminine frosting", which she associated with stilletoes and garish insta-face make-up.
Applying myself to the contents, I found I appreciated the focused, linear acidity and the texture. This is a structured rosé for those who like sherry, Gruener and Assyrtiko.
Domaine Haut Gléon, Vallée Du Paradis, 2019 aromas of lime, honeysuckle, mint and rubbed sage with citrussy, grapefruit freshness; taut, linear acidity with redcurrant fruit and saline minerality; very focused, textured and precise.
Match with Mediterranean starters: bread with olive oil. anchovies and tapenade.
