2006 Château Guiot (Southern Rhône, France)

Grenache & Syrah Rosé

Darker than what I would normally associate with French Rosé - looks more Californian. Attractive bright strawberry and raspberry nose with some spicy, stemmy action.

In the mouth, a more full flavor of red berries than most French Rosé. Very "juicy" - reminds me of a watermelon purée. Snappy acidity makes this a great Summer quaffer. Great choice for a house rosé. Damn delicious tonight with some wilted Summer greens.

Year in, year out Château Guiot can be counted on for a great value Rosé.

Score: 87
Price: $7.99 (Winex)

I have a bottle of this, just waiting for a warm day! Cost me a little more though - $A22.

The colour looks absolutely amazing. It looks like Cognac.
