Tasting Notes

Catherine and James Kinglake bought the domaine in 2003 and have since organically harvested their 29 hectares, creating excellent natural wines that truly express the terroir of Limoux. From the website, the 2014 rosé of Pinot Noir is "delicate and refined with wild strawberry and cranberry."

    Begude wines are always a pleasure to drink. The 2014 Rosé is no exception. It has a beautiful pink color and is soft and round in the mouth. Red fruit flavors dominate and there is a clean crisp finish to this dry wine. Great alone, it will go well with lighter foods.

    The Begude Pinot Noir Rosé is a top rosé every summer, and the 2014 vintage does not disappoint! Wild strawberry and cherry shine through from the Pinot Noir, with refreshing acidity and a bone-dry finish.

    A Sancerre-like Pinot Noir rosé for $12.99 that's organic...what's not to love about this wine?!?! Fresh, elegant and crisp, this Pinot Noir rosé shows beautifully ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit with a light touch of minerality on its dry finish.

    By strategically placing little pheromone pouches throughout the vineyards, the good folks at Domaine Begude manage to deter invasive vine moths by creating a state of “sexual confusion”. Whatever it takes I suppose, but don’t be confused by the brilliance of their organic wines, longtime favorites among staff and customers here at K&L. And summer wouldn’t quite feel right without a rollicking, frolicking glass of rosé, this version delivering expressive Pinot Noir aromas and refined, exotic flavors of cranberry, wildflowers and forest strawberry, captivatingly dry and complex. Charcuterie or seared tuna would be a welcome complement to this delicious wine. Enjoy!
    Top Value!

    Strawberries and fruit pie grabbed at my nostrils, with a lovely dry finish to round out this Pinot Noir rose. Delicate (like their Sauvignon Blanc) and for those looking for a classic French rose that is not nearly as fruit forward as some come these days. Grab some of these gems before they go with the wind...

    The Begude rosé has always been of our best selling rosé every year, and there is a reason for it. I'd like to tell people that this is the other style of French rosés. Not Provençal at all. It is more racy, more delicate, and bone dry. More reminiscent of a Sancerre rosé, not just because of the cépage, Pinot Noir, but the style. Dried rose petals, raspberry lots of minerality and even a touch of salinity which is quite beguiling. I can think of no other type of wine to drink on a hot California day!

    Year in, year out, the rose is always one of our top buys in the category. Don't mistake this for a Provencal knock off, the pinot fruit shines through here. White cherry, red currants, wet stone and a touch of fresh sorrel make for a complete and engaging wine. So refreshing, you'll reach for another bottle as quickly as you drain the first. We only received one shipment of this wine so it is becoming quite the commodity. Stock up now!
