La Rame rosé wrap-up

Posted on Posted in Chateau La Rame, Rosé Report Archive

Although Chateau La Rame is most renowned for its impeccable botrytized sweet wines (arguably the greatest producer in the appellation of Sainte-Croix-du-Mont), they produce dry wines of terrific balance and outstanding value. Their 2016 Bordeaux Rosé is a trace lighter in color than previous vintages–more a shimmering silvery salmon than a bright pink. Produced from equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and made via direct pressing, it has a gentle, easygoing character–less about intense raciness and more about a relaxed sense of balance. The wine has plenty of supporting acidity, and its fruit character is fresh and crunchy, with enough varietal typicity to ground the wine but without any toughness or unnecessary power.
