La Ruchette Doree 2017 Rosé – France

La Ruchette Doree 2017 Rose - France

Have you heard the news? The Wine Gallery is now known as Good Pair Days. The company has a whole new look plus a wider variety of wines to choose from for #thetcwineclub! I couldn’t resist picking this Southern Rhone Valley (France) La Ruchette Doree 2017 Rosé for this month’s 3-pack.

This blushing wine is made from Grenache grapes which are grown amongst olive groves and lavender and rosemary fields – hence the very pretty label design. I also really like how on the back label they note down what all the different plants are that feature on the label.

So what’s this one like? Well it’s definitely a dry Rosé with plenty of acidity and extremely food friendly. We enjoyed it with a cheese and antipasto board. It was perfect in the late afternoon sun.

The suggested recipe match from Good Pair Days is a Bagna Cauda (Anchovy Dip) – I am not a huge fan of anchovies  so I decided to skip making this one.

Here are my tasting notes:

It’s a pale pinky-peach colour in the glass. Notrs of peaches, raspberries, mandarin and a hint of vanilla rise from the glass. While in the mouth, it’s extremely easy-drinking with a lovely lick of pink lady apples and a sprinkling of white pepper. Yum!

This bottle was sent to me as a sample from Good Pair Days.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
