Gérard Bertrand Côte Des Roses Rosé 2018Coteaux du Languedoc, Languedoc, South of France, FranceCôte des Roses is a celebration of the Mediterranean lifestyle, something Gerard Bertrand has done with style for three 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. It smells of strawberries and watermelon sprayed with citrus but more than anything it tastes like fun. Even so, a lively, vibrant, mineral undercurrent supports a similar flavoured palate with a riff of Southern France garrigue. Dry, firm and elegant pink would suggest the serious wine set would approve. Halibut tacos, spicy tuna poke or lobster risotto all work here.Tasted: 16 April 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 24.95 private wine shops AB 22.99 private wine shops NB 19.99 NBLiquor NS 19.99 NSLC NF 21.99 NLLC MB 22.99 Manitoba's Liquor Marts Online ON 19.95 LCBO QC 18.35 SAQ Producer: Gérard BertrandDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
