Gérard Bertrand Gris Blanc Rosé 2015, Pays D'oc, Midi I.G.P., France: A pale ballet slipper pink, almost crystalline transparency in the glass. This southern French rosé is made from Grenache Noir and Grenache Gris grapes, thus Gris Blanc (grey-white) are hand-picked in the Roussillon region located in Tautavel between the Mediterranean sea and the Pyrenees mountains. The wine is matured on the fine lees for several weeks before bottling. Lovely mouth-watering acidity for fresh seafood salads. Finishes savoury with dried herbs and garrigue with some light racy cherry on the finish. Drink: 2015-2017. 409870 12.50% XD 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 91/100. June 25, 2016 Best Value Rosé Wine.
