Lettie Teague was on to something when she wrote about ros's being over rated. Jon Bonne at the Sanfrancisco Chronicle did something similar. And it's no wonder..most are now so sweet and stupid and spoofed they might as well me white zinfandel. Where are the real ross?
Just had two spectacular ones which do exactly what you want a summer ros to do, offer refreshment and yet hold your attention. Importer is Louis/Dressner.
**Baudry 2006 Chinon ($15)
Great crushed aspirin, Campari like bitterness with an edge.
**Puzelat 2004 VdT Francais KO ros ($14)
Melon-ish on the nose with tea tartness.
