Costières de Nîmes: Château Roubaud Rosé 2020
The Molinier's dry Costières de Nîmes rosé wine is blended from 40% Grenache Noir, 40% Syrah, and 20% Cinsault. It has quite a full-bodied palate so it stands up well to a garlic-rich aioli or spicy merguez sausages - ideal for picnics and barbecues.
A deep coloured Rosé with ample red berry fruit aromas that give way to a rounded, redcurrant palate prior to a long, dry finish.
