Domaine du Météore's latest release



2019 Le Météore, Faugères Rosé - £15.50

it is the season for rosé, even though the weather in London has been generally  unseasonally chilly – we should have been planning rosé tastings during the sunniest month of May.  But never mind a bottle of Domaine du Météore’s new rosé was delivered the other day.   The blend consists of  50% Cinsault, 40% Grenache Noir and just 10% Mourvèdre, which would add some structure. Direct pressing, for lightly coloured juice and a cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks followed.   I liked it a lot, with a pretty pale colour and a delicate nose.  The palate is nicely balanced, youthful and elegant with fresh stony fruit, with hints of raspberry and some balancing acidity and structure.   It could be a food rosé or an aperitif, whichever is needed.  

I am looking forward to some cellar visits in France, now that quarantine restrictions have come to an end, and I hope to be to visit this estate and see the changes under the new ownership.
