2009 Les Mugues "Balandran" COSTIERES DE NIMES ROSÉ (Rhone Valley, France)

A good, chunky rose. Lots of flavor, but needs to be drunk soon.

Light bubble gum orangey pink. Juicy aromas of ripe grapes and watermelon, with hints of stone dust and sweet cream. Round, dry, and ripe, with nicely concentrated fruit in a well-balanced, medium full-bodied format. Decent acidity. B-. About $15 at most Spec's stores. Imported by Douglas Skopp Selections.

(Sorry, 2007 depicted).
