Rosé 2009

Attitude by Pascal Jolivet

Attitude Rosé is the result of traditional wine making techniques from grapes grown in the Loire Valley. The vineyard soils are chalky and calcareous clay, with the potential to give Attitude lovely fruit aromas and freshness on the palate.

The Attitude Rosé is a blend of press wine and juice obtained using the saignée method, where some of the juice of wine macerated on the skins has been bled off. The juice is produced from grapes that are macerated that have not been sorted or de-stemmed.

Additional Information

The wine has a beautiful candy color, and elegant flavors of red fruits. The Pinot Noir gives finesse and fruit; the Gamay gives strength and the Cabernet lends fruitiness and structure. The blend results in an elegant wine with balance and smoothness. This light wine is perfect summer wine, an excellent match for pastas, salads, white meats and fish.

    "Long and savory, this tastes like black currants, from the tart fruit to the dusky leaves, with violet notes on top and minerality underneath. A mouthwatering acidity runs through it, handling its weight with grace. For game or mushrooms dishes."

    "Attitude by Pascal Jolivet 2009 Ros was produced from fruit sourced in the Loire Valley. This offering is a blend of equal parts Pinot Noir, Gamay and Cabernet Sauvignon. This offering was produced using a combination of press juice and some obtained using the saigne method. This 2009 Ros has a suggested retail price of $16.I was immediately struck by the color of this Ros; its classic pink hue is tinged with a touch or orange. Aromas of wild strawberry and vibrant red raspberry fill the seductive nose of this wine. Red fruit characteristics continue through the palate where theyre joined by elements of citrus. Ruby grapefruit notes in particular make their presence known. White pepper and sour red fruit along with additional citrus are all part of the finish. Solid acidity keeps things nicely balanced. This is a wine that is going to make you want to keep going back to the glass for sip after sip.This wine is textbook Ros. Its light and refreshing, a natural for food and is sure to please a wide array of taste buds. This is an excellent choice for a holiday meal loaded with diverse flavors. At $16, less if you shop around, its easy on your wallet too."

    Diluted color with more peach than pink. Mold under the capsule was cause for some concern over the integrity of this particular bottle. Lots of acid - maybe too much - on the light-medium frame and long aftertaste. Not the most appealing structure of the line up, but would probably be good with a cold fish dish.
