- Poured clear, almost like water
- no nose....I could smell a touch of citrus but very little
- light, bright, crisp. lemony and dry
- it was an okay pairing but the dish really needed a heavier wine.
- wonderful as an apertif
I then promptly forgot that I had bought the bottle and did a pairing for this theme, so the next time I was out on an excursion to Total Wines, I bought 2 more bottles, a Rosé and another Bergerac Sec.
I have turned itno a big Rosé fan, especially during the summer months. So I gravitated towards this Mont Gravet Rosé from the Languedoc region. Bonus because it was less than $10 at Total Wines.
I was having friends over for dinner and opened this bottle that I sipped as an apertif while we enjoyed appetizers and waited for the main course to finish cooking. It is a lovely sipping wine, very crisp and acidic, perfect for the lovely Spring evening.
