Natalie's Score: 91/100

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.

Gris Blanc Rosé food pairings: seafood salad, chilled prawns with strawberry champagne dressing, seafood ceviche.

Reviews and Ratings

This Gris Blanc rosé brought to us by Gérard Bertrand is from the Pays D'oc in the Midi. It is a delicate, fresh and the palest pink rosé made from Grenache Gris and Grenache Noir grapes grown between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees Mountains. Lovely ripe stonefruit, berries with a touch of dried herbs on the nose and palate all wrapped up in refreshing acidity. Sip away or have with tempura seafood or crispy calamari. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
