2017 César de Vendôme Gris, Coteaux Vendômois

2017 César de Vendôme Gris, Coteaux Vendômois 

This is a pleasant, well-made Rosé from the Cave Coopérative du Vendômois. Made from 100% Pineau d'Aunis, which is somewhat of a speciality of the Valley of Le Loir. I found this 2017 rosé a little bland as it was missing the characteristic peppery character of Pineau d'Aunis, which makes is what makes wines from this variety stand out.
