Tasting Notes

(last of vintage) Noblaie's rosé is produced from younger Cabernet Franc vines, which are planted in the deeper soils at the base of the hillside vineyard. It has a clear and smooth pink color, deep, rich aromas of watermelon and cranberry and loads of lovely fresh red fruits on the palate.

    Is it Provence? Mais Non… It is from the “other” Rosé region in France… The Loire Valley! With a touch more spices due to the Cabernet Franc grapes, and beautiful floral notes, this rosé will sure please any rosé lovers out there. Sure Provence is very well known for its rosés, but the beautiful Loire Valley is, let’s just say… Second to none!

    Notes of wet pavement, pomelo, and lime combine in this eminently refreshing, pucker-y rose. While the texture mid-palate is round, this is emphatically not one of those richer styled Chinon rosés; it is more along the lines of a momentary rest-stop on a tartness continuum.

    What a lovely Cab Franc rose. Noticeably floral in character, this wine is very light and bright. The white blossom nose is complimented wonderfully by the distinct aromas of fresh strawberries, cherries, and a little watermelon. There is a faint hint of crunchy peppers in the delightfully rounded palate. Very enjoyable rose for a summer's eve.

    100% Cabernet Franc, this rosé is fresh and bright, and void of that herbaceous funk you might expect. With notes of cherry, flowers, melon and a lengthy mineral finish this rosé is perfect for all your summer parties.

    Nice full red fruit richness and spice along with a balanced texture on the palate. I would suggest sitting outdoors having an early evening meal and sipping this through the night. Superb with a green salad with crispy lardons and a fried egg - trust me!
