Baudry Chinon Rose
We had fresh tuna last night- it was supposed to be a salad nicoise, but the potatoes didn't look like salad material, so I fried them instead - tasted good anyway. With the tuna, we had the Baudry Chinon Rose. As you can see from the picture, this is a very delicate salmon colour. It is delicate all over actually, delicate nose and delicate fruit on the palate. Crisp acidity and a real mineral finish make this a great food wine as opposed to a sitting-in-the-garden type of rose. We liked it and finished the bottle, which is always a good sign.
I think this might feature in the Irish Times soon as well, so keep an eye out...
