Serious Rosé

Rosé wines are not for serious wine drinkers.!!! That is what you will hear from the majority of serious wine drinkers.To be honest...I would never order a Rosé wine in a restaurant...and can't remember making up a mixed case with the pink stuff. The problem may be that some are beefed up whites and the others watered down reds.
Robert, friend and wine merchant...paid a visit and we shared a few glasses of white.
As a present...he gave me a half bottle...and a few days later..I risked it!

The food was a favourite...Lamb Filets...with some Dauphinoise Potatoes and very fresh Mushrooms.

Mint sauce...very English. Very delicious. I still can't convince the Germans to try it...they all expect something like a Peppermint tea!

Château de Pibarnon Rosé 2018

Intense salmon color. Nose of apricot core, tangerine, fresh pineapple, licorice...even a trace of mild whiskey. Palate of citrus and stone fruit with well balanced bitters and acids.
Points 16
