An Old Tasting

*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample to participate in a Twitter Taste Live Event

Oops. Here’s another set of long lost posts from a Twitter Event I participated in last September I think. A few set of posts from those types of tastings fell through the cracks for me last summer/fall as I generally jot my notes down on paper (the horror!) while doing the tastings and then have to go back and type them into the computer. That involved way too many steps for my tired self this fall and so they fell by the wayside. Never fear, I’m getting them done now! The 2009 Les Griottes Beaujolais Rose was the only Rose in this Beajolais tasting. It clocked in at 13% alcohol by volume, had a plastic cork closure, and retails for about $16.

Apparently I was on a color of the wine kick when I was taking notes last fall as I also noted the lovely salmon color of this wine. On the nose I got strawberry, red cherry, and cranberry. I could almost smell the acidity on the nose. The palate mimed the nose exactly. Overall the wine was light, crisp, and refreshing. My only issue is that I’m not sure I’m willing to pay $16 for a Rose.
