Côtes de Gascogne: Domaine Millet Rosé 2013

The Domaine Millet rosé is made predominantly from the obscure Egiodola grape (which was new even
to Jancis Robinson!) and 20% Cabernet Franc. It has lovely crushed berry scents and flavours and a bright, fruity palate, making it every bit as commendable as its white Ugni Blanc / Colombard sibling.

What others think of this wine...

The Wine Gang - June 2014 says:

Home to a plethora of native grapes, this SW France wine doesn't let the side down as it's made from the very local grape Egiodola, albeit with a dollop of Cabernet Franc (which hails from SW France too, don't you know). Mid-pink in colour and dry on the palate, with a tangy strawberry flavour and a touch of pink peppercorns on the finish. 86/100.
