Coral pink.  She’s ringent and well-defined, her basket of berry and citrus complicated by forest air and quinine bitterness.  Appetizing and dry with mineralic detail.  I feared a Rosé blend of 77 crus may turn out anodyne: not the case here, this has personality and interest.  Drinking well now.  Now – 2016+.
