Domaine Horgelus Cotes de Gascogne Rosé
An intense and complex bouquet of sweet wild strawberries, citrus fruits and fresh, juicy blackcurrants lead into a smooth and thirst-quenching palate with notes of wild herbs and a citrussy acidity. Domaine Horgelus Rose is made from grapes that were picked at night, an old trick in hotter climes for keeping everything fresh.
Region: South West France
Subregion: Côtes De Gascogne
Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat, Merlot
Bottle Size: 75cl
Style: Fruity and refreshing
Drink With: Grilled chicken, salads and salmon dishes but also just by itself
This Gascon pink from Domaine Horgelus puts dark-skinned and rather austere Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat with supple, easy-going Merlot. Of course, in rosé form this makes an exuberantly fruity wine, solidly dry but nicely full on the palate. Although it is moderately light in colour, it certainly lacks nothing in terms of flavour
Why we like this wine
This is a deliciously fruity rose with a good clip of acidity to really refresh the palate. No matter whether you're drinking this in the sunshine or on a cold, rainy day, it will put some of the Gascogne warmth inside you and always put a smile on your face!
- Fruity and very refreshing

John Wilson writing in The Irish Times:
A delicious refreshing light rosé, brimming with lightly textured ripe strawberry fruits. Perfect on its own, with salads or grilled white meats.
Liam Campbell writing in The Irish Independent:
Pungent herbs and fresh basil leaves. Berry juicy and fruity with a herbal tone. Needs robust food - beef burgers with a spicy tomato relish.
