I’ll happily hold my hand up to being something of a wine snob sometimes and Rosé, along with Pinot Grigio, has always been one of those wines which has my snob radar on full alert.
Of late though I’ve found myself warming more to the idea of Rosé wine, and the clever chaps at Find Wine have clearly picked up on this, as they’ve just sent me a bottle of Les Acrobates Rosé 2010 from the Languedoc.
I find that some Rosé wines leave my teeth positively throbbing due to their incredible sweetness. Happily this wine is a much more subtle effort which slides down effortlessly and instantly reminded me of holidays in Greece where Rosé was my wine of choice in preference to the local Retsina.
This wine is a very summery one indeed. Both the nose and palate are dominated by pleasant strawberry notes and there’s a slight creaminess to it which rounds the wine off very nicely. I’m still not an ardent Rosé fan, but if I were this is what I’d be drinking, and at £5.99 a bottle you can’t go wrong.
