2017 Domaine de Fontsainte - Gris de Gris Corbières (89 pts) #winereview @kermitlynchwine · 🥇Winner of the Rosé Blind Tasting Tournament. This wine is also the 2nd most affordable bottle in the tasting at $15 👊· ℹ️ This wine is from Corbières which is an appellation in the Languedoc-Roussillon in Southern France. This wine is technically a rosé and is aptyly named a 'Gris de Gris' literally meaning a grey wine from grey grapes. This wine is 50% Grenache Gris (not actually grey, but pink grapes), 20% Grenache Noir, 20% Carignan, 5% Cinsault, and 5% Mourvèdre. Hand harvested, made using Saignée method, and blocked MLF· 👁 An extremely pale salmon color· 👃Medium intensity on the nose. Aromas of white flowers, peach, fresh strawberry, melon, meyer lemon, wet stone, and ocean air· 👄 The wine is dry, medium+ lively acidity, medium alcohol, and medium body. The palate has fruit flavors of peach, melon, strawberry, and sweet lemons. Then you are hit with floral notes and this chalky minerality on the subtle, but lingering medium+ length finish· 🔔 This wine is 1 word - Balanced! Interesting aromatics, great acidity, integrated alcohol, good weight, and this complex but restrained finish. I am very impressed by this wine in this line up and then dumbfounded when I looked up the price. 🙇‍♂️· #ros éallday #roseallday #rosewine #blindtasting #grenache #frenchwine #rosewine #corbieres #france
