Charming, restrained, snappy.
This gorgeous bottle houses a pale salmony pink, which is a blend of Grenache with 20% Cinsault, 20% Tibouren (first you've heard that one, I'll wager) and 10% Syrah. Additionally, Chateau Roubine is certified organic and has been utilizing biodynamic practices for many years.
This vintage offers aromas of kumquats and rooibos tea, citrus blossoms, fine spices and pencil eraser. It is bright and tangy in the mouth with restrained flavours of pink grapefruit and wild red berries. It seems to be lighter than the last vintage I tasted (2016) and is certainly a snappy sip deserving attention.
