LVE French Rosé 2021

Languedoc, France
175 days ago

Andrea Shapiro scored this wine: 92/100

The LVE Collection is John Legend’s Legend Vineyard Exclusives in collaboration wine with Jean-Charles Boisset and Raymond Vineyards, a bright and mouthwatering Rose. Pale pink colour with vibrant floral aromas of rose petals, hydrangea and lilies with flavours of crisp tart apple, citrus and limestone minerals. An outstanding rose, with fresh herbs lingering on the tongue. A perfect accompaniment with salmon sushi. An enjoyable light and complex sipper. Cheers! - tasted April 2023

A dealcoholized Cabernet Sauvignon from Carl Jung estates. Located in Germany, named after the godfather of alcohol free wines, this is made from grape must from Spain, this Cabernet can still offer flavourful nuances even without the alcohol content with aromas and flavours of cherry, red berry and cola with a hint of tannin. Not overly sweet or bad for what it is. Try it at the next baby shower, as a gift for mom or with an outdoor grill.

Vibrant aromas of tropical mango, papaya, and kiwi. Flavours are lively on the tongue with bright zesty citrus, green pepper, fresh sage and zesty limestone minerals. Mouthwatering acidity with pear and green apple on the finish. This will make a wonderful pairing with seared scallops or grilled chicken.

Peaches, white apple blossoms and apricot aromas in this vibrant sparkling bubbly from Rosehall Run Vineyards. With 10.5% Abv, Indigo is bursting with flavours of zesty citrus, canned peaches and soft shell and stone minerals. Medium plus acidity, with a light body and finish with enticing elements of stone fruit on the finish.

An organic Chilean Merlot from Emiliana Vineyards. Medium purple in colour with aromas consisting of jelly donuts, blueberry, roasted vanilla beans with earthy tar and forest floor. Flavours are fleshy with plummy blackberry, smoky oak and hints of bay leaves. Medium acidity and tannins with a short body. A nice value and a great burger wine.
