Attractive 2017 Cabochard Rosé, Côte Roannaise, Sérol

Another good 2017 – this time the 2017 Cabochard, Côte Roannaise Rosé from Domaine Sérol. 100% Gamay – vibrant pink colour, lively, refreshing but not acidic rosé. Good to drink even during the winter but should shine even more brightly in the summer. Stéphane and Carine Sérol's wines are consistently good. 

Although the Côte Roannaise is only a small appellation there are a group of good producers here who are well worth discovering – both for their Côte Roannaise appellation wines (red and rosé) but also for their IGP whites from a range of grape varieties including Rousanne and Viognier.
