François Chidaine, Touraine Val de Loire Rosé 2012

Chidaine Rose 2012

50% Pinot Noir; 50% Grolleau.

A fullish salmon color.  A buddleia floral fragrance.  Piquant, slightly bitter, gently herbal: gooseberry skin, yellow beet and a musky rose daikon.  A stone cold minerality.  This one is actually dry; not picking up a trace of residual sugar.  For us, this is stylish and individual.  Easily our favorite Rosé of the season .. but consider the source, we eat our radish tops.
