2017 Julien Braud - Forty Ounce Rosé (84 pts) #winereview @veritywines @fortyouncewines · 🥊 Round 5 of the Rosé Blind wine tournament. A good guess on the origin of this wine. Huge value proposition, but was slightly outclassed on gumminess by it's challenger· ℹ️ This is a Vin de France 🇫🇷 Rosé with grapes coming from Muscadet and Touraine. The blend is 35% Gamay, 35% Merlot, 12% Grolleau, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Pineau d'Aunis, and 2% Pinot Gris. Sustainable vineyard practices. Full MLF and short aging on lees· 👀 Pale pink color· 👃Low intensity on the nose. Light floral, wet rock, and red currant· 👄 The wine is dry, surprisingly high acidity, medium- alcohol, and medium body. Medium intensity on the palate. Flavors of red currant, strawberry, wet rock, steeliness, and green pepper. The finish is medium- length and ends on a green pepper and metallic note · 🔔 I liked this bottling a lot more last year. Could this production have just skyrocketed 🚀 due to a hot 🔥trend? I ❤️ the packaging, but the juice was better last year. The low intensity on the nose and the flavors on the finish really knocked it down prior to learning what it was. ⚠️ this is still a lot of wine for $16 (remember it's 1L or 34 oz despite the name) and it is decent for the price. My hipster fad radar 📡 is going off 😥. In Blind, We Trust 😎· #ros éallday #roseallday #rosewine #frenchwine #40oz #gamay #merlot #blindtasting #fortyouncewines
