Reviews and Ratings

Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Moderately pink in hue this clear, bright wine exhibits shy, watermelon, pansies, honey dew melon, and red berry fruit. This wonderful rosé is medium bodied and sports medium - high acidity. In the mouth, flavours of watermelon, tangerine, honey dew, touch of cranberry reveal themselves. Great balance between fruit and acidity here. La Forêt will pair well with baked lightly breaded pork chops, served with grilled watermelon.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Wild strawberry aromas with a little cranberry and a touch of spearmint. The taste is light, fresh, and very summery. For something different, try this with some soft cheese and crackers.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Bursting with aromas of wild strawberries and raspberries with a feminine floral presence on the nose. Dry with great acidity and a long, ripe strawberry finish.
Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A nice dry, fruity summer drinking wine. Lots of ripe berries on the nose and a long finish of strawberries and herbs. Great on its own or paired with grilled seafood or a shrimp salad.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

What a wine for the price. This wine is more complex than most Rosés, not only featuring primary aromas of strawberry, ripe raspberry, currant jam and rhubarb, but also secondary aromas of spice, dried citrus peel and dried flowers. Fantastic. 89 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This rosé, made of gamay, syrah, cabernet and négrette (a native grape in the Fronton region of southwestern France) smells of red apple and wild strawberry, as well as a hint of spice and subtle citrus. On the mouth it's dry, with more of the same characteristics, in addition to red currant and cranberry.
