a.o.p. Touraine Rosé
Delicate and mild on the palate rounding off to a supple finish,
this rosé can be enjoyed whatever the occasion.
Its pretty raspberry-pink robe harbours a fresh bouquet of red fruits with woodland strawberry aromas. Round and refreshing on the palate, striking a harmonious balance. Ideal with melon, cold prepared meats or BBQ grilled meats, this wine also hits the spot as a thirst-quencher.
