Domaine des Herbauges, Rosé "Eleon’Or", Loire Valley, France 2021
55% Gamay, 40% Grolleau Noir, 5% Grolleau Gris
JUICY-TART PLUM & GRENADINE, BLOSSOMY FRESHNESS
While this rosy refresher comes to us from the lakeside land of Muscadet, it features a variety best known for its rosé work in the Middle-Loire’s Anjou. This, however, is quite different from the fleshier, classically less-dry rosés from the Loire lore of yore. At a thirst-quenchingly low alcohol level and teeming with tongue-tingling acidity, this pretty pink is practically the promised land of rosé refreshment.
Serving Suggestion: Mac & cheese-style cauliflower casserole w/ blistered green beans & garlic-miso sauce. "General Tso’s" fried tofu w/ lo mein & baby corn.
