Gérard Bertrand Côte Des Roses Rosé 2017

Coteaux du Languedoc, Languedoc, Sud de France, FranceMore than anything, Côte des Roses celebrates the Mediterranean lifestyle, something Gerard Bertrand has done with style for more than two decades. The grenache, cinsault, syrah blend comes off mostly hard limestone and schist with a lesser contribution of gravels from the rivers of the Languedoc region. Strawberry, watermelon and citrus with fresh lively mineral undercurrent supports a similar flavoured palate with a riff of Southern France garrigue. Dry, firm and elegant, a pairing of lobster comes to mind, as does a spicy tuna poke. The bottle is original with its base in the shape of a rose, created by a young designer from the Ecole Boulle. It’s a wine intended to be given in the same way you would offer a bunch of roses.Tasted: 25 May 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: ON 19.00 LCBO QC 18.35 SAQ NB 19.99 NBLiquor NS 19.99 NSLC NF 21.99 NLLC MB 22.99 Manitoba's Liquor Marts Online BC 24.99 BCLS Producer: Gérard BertrandDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
