Winery:Château de Manissy
Variety:Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre
Robert Parker Rating:89
RP 89 points: Another top-flight 2008 Rose, this offering is from Tavel, which means more body than most Cotes du Rhone roses. Primarily Grenache with Clairette, Syrah, & Cinsault included in the blend, this is a serious, bone dry rose revealing a slight austerity as well as copious quantities of fresh strawberry & cherry fruit intermixed with notions of spring flowers & earth. Big-boned, masculine, & slightly tannic, it is a strong rose for matching with an assortment of foods.
