La Salette, IGP Côtes de Gascogne Rouge, 2020

This is a light, deliriously purple-hued wine which one could easily serve lightly chilled with lunch or with spicy food: the French would call it "frais", fresh. There's a sense of fresh ripe strawberries and raspberries, a gentle fragrance, plenty of flesh and minimal tannins. Very easy-drinking, a blend of Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Now-2023

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
