2008 Château Bellevue La Forêt Fronton Rosé

Nice rosé on the cheap with hints of passion fruit, strawberry, pineapple, guava and citrus on the nose, with just the slightest bit of alcohol. On the palate, this is exactly what it is, a $10 rosé, but a pretty good QPR (quality to price ration). Again, nice hints of passion fruit and guava, with some lemon grass coming through.

Nice acidty and a crisp finish make this a good summer sipper. We actually bough this last summer at the Bottle Shop at Spring Lake, and it got buried in the back of our refrigerator and I forgot it was in there. Never even logged it into CellarTracker as a matter of fact. OOPS! Regardless, it made for a nice summer sipper on a 75 degree spring day in NJ here in March. 84 points! Cheers!
