A serious rose that some people describe as a "rarity for the ages." We carry it because its an interesting part of the story of the Loire Valley and always wickedly delicious.
Jeff describes is as "a structured rose with crazy minerality. Dense strawberry fruit and a lot of aromatic lift. Tastes like what I imagine red Chablis taste like."
