Kylie Minogue, Rosé, Vin de France, France, 2020
(at Montferrier-sur-Lez, France, 30 Apr 2021)
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2022
Delicate, bright, pale pink in colour. Scents of clean, fresh summer fruit with plenty of lift and poise: peach, pear and quince. Delicate; neither over-stated nor obvious. On the palate, too, the fruits are delicate (there’s a little strawberry now) and moreish. This ‘Vin de France’ version is crisper than its creamier Provence sibling: bright, focussed, almost crunchy. But there’s nothing hard about the acidity; the wine has ample vinosity and sap to match up to food, and the lees undertow fills out the palate and keeps you coming back for more. Skilfully blended.
