Pierre Gimonnet & Fils Rosé de Blancs 1er Cru
“Rosé de Blancs” is a statement that even Gimonnet’s pink wine is made in the chardonnay style of the house. The base wine is the Gastronome cuvée, 100% chardonnay, to which is added a 12% dose of pinot noir red wine for colour and a touch of red fruit flavour. This produces a rosé of super pale salmon hue and gorgeous aromas of red cherry, strawberry hull and rose petals. The palate is pristine, focused and consummately mineral, with classic Gimonnet elegance tickled with the lightest touch of red fruit. It’s not yet in Australia, but grab it the moment it lands.
