Gérard Bertrand Côte des Roses 2015

I think half the price of this wine is the gorgeous custom bottle: glass stopper and a base made as an impression of a deep petal rose “created by a young star of the Boulle design school, was conceived to be given like a bunch of roses.” Not sure Mrs Drew would be completely enamoured with me if I presented an upside down bottle to her on Valentine’s Day. Made from  Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah (shiraz). Exclusive in Australia to Dan Murphy’s and BWS stores.

Gérard Bertrand, Côtes de Roses, Rosé, Languedoc, 2015

Light peach in colour. Slightly gamey but pleasant nose of red currant, candied grapefruit, peach skin. Vibrant red fruit palate with echoes of the peach stone fruit and pink grapefruit. Some white pepper spice lingers acceptably at the finish. Pleasing enough and not overtly fruited. The bottle is certainly an attractive piece to keep well after the rosé is consumed.

 RRP: $26

Alc: 13%
