Bergerie de L'Hortus 2021 Rose, Languedoc, France
This wine has been such a massive success for us for so many years I almost feel like just trying, “This is everything you want in a rose” That or, “Don’t think it, just drink it” But maybe y’all want a little more information. One thing we love about this wine is that it is not a cookie cutter of each vintage. It wears it vintage big and bold on its sleeve. Stamped across its aromas and all over the palate. Always polished and delicious but with wonderful little time stamps of what each vintage brings. Seeing as I have already taken this 2021 home about twice a week since it arrived, well 2021 is a saucy and craveable vintage. Plump fruit upfront with a perfect slice of perky acid, the wine enters your palate, fills your mouth and the acidity trickles in behind it and cleans it all up. Love that.
