Vintages Wine Panel: A perennial customer favourite, the Malivoire Ladybug Rosé is seriously fun. Notes of red cherry, strawberry and watermelon on the nose. Great fruit on the palate, echoing the aromas. Just slightly off-dry, medium bodied with a bright acidity that makes for a crisp finish. This is a well-made, easygoing rosé with oodles of character. The blend here is Cabernet Franc, Gamay and Pinot Noir. Enjoy this wine tonight. My note: One of Canada’s best producers of Rose, if not the best. This lovely wine has it all: alluring field berry aromas, ephemeral lightness and a certain something that makes you come back to the glass again and again. Some kind of wonderful.

Cabernet Franc Gamay food pairings: grilled-chicken salad.

Peppery.
Jason Solanki rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I have purchased this wine in previous vintages and enjoyed it each and every time. It has become a personal favourite. The 2010 features citrus, spring flowers, and strawberry aromas. Watermelon, red berries on the palate. Medium-bodied and feels heavy (not typical of a rosé.) Slightly off-dry. It's well made and definitely recommended. Tasted July/2011.
Ryan Hindmarsh rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The Tulips are a bloomin and Rosé is in season. Thank you Malivoire for giving me thisimage. This Rosé is like Lady GaGa wearing a candy necklace. It is sweet, playful, has a nice body and a memorable nose. Pair this with a sunny day on a teak lounger with Alejandro.

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.
