2011 Grand Vin Rose

Antonio Galloni-92 Points
$35.00 Quantity:  

The 2011 Grand Vin Rose is a bit less rich than the 2010, but much more focused and delineated.  I very much like the sense of energy and tension here.  Sweet floral and spice notes add lift on a finish laced with sweet tobacco and crushed flowers.
