Frémillant 2017 Minervois rosé
Bottle price : 6,50 euros
It shudders, interferes, plays with dormant buds, teases the most asleep sensory tools, and explodes long, long, like a beautiful 14th July fireworks.
Crisp and tender, fruity and structured, it’s a non-ephemeral seducer. No need of food to take a glass of that brilliant rosé. It will also make a success out of charcuterie and farm chicken dishes.

Tasting : Its flamboyant color surprise and is a call to gluttony. The nose is fruity, fresh, while the mouth attacks with vivacity on fruit touches, quenching. A wine to drink right now on charcuterie, salted pies, perfect for aperitive or in the midle of the afternoon.Fiche descriptive
