Wine 3 – Rosé : Fruité Catalan, AOC/AOP Côtes du Roussillon

A very commercial look with a transparent label and some butterflies lingering on the bottle. Not the type of label that would attract this guy but I could imagine that a lot of people dig such a kind of bottle.

The color is a nice pink and this is were the transparent label gets his thing done: what a good view on this heavy pink, almost reddish, color.

In the first nose a bit shy but after a while the strawberries, red berries and a hint of white pepper kick in. Medium body and easy drinking (a hint of sweetness) with again a peppery note in the final. A quick check on the back label shows a 13% alcohol.

Conclusion: a well made and commercial rosé that a lot of people will like, though be it a bit heavy on the alcohol side. However, not my cup of rosé. On a terrace, on a nice sunny day I will drink a glass of this and enjoy it but then I would ask the wine card again and order me something completely different, something with more balls, brains and a bit profundity.
