À table ! ! !
Lunch is ready, have a seat!
Pour yourself a big glass of rosé and relax. Don’t fancy rose? Well, do it anyway. I think you’re gonna like this. I am absolutely convinced.
“À table ! ! !” is Malbec, Tannat and Merlot.
It’s partly ‘saignée’ (closer to a red than traditional rosé) and partly ‘direct press’ (closer to white than red). It’s aged partly in cement, and more noticeable, partly in barrique.
I definitely prefer a dark and bold rosé to the traditional ones, no doubt about it!
And for years “À table ! ! !” has been one of my personal benchmarks for this style of rosé.
Creamy and solidly built.
Very, very clean.
A fantastic rosé.
Actually, when I come to think about it. It smells, tastes and behaves just like it looks.
And it looks nice, eh?
