Winery/Producer: Bernard Baudry; Cravant-les-Coteaux, France.

Paired With: Gourmet popcorn.
He said: Chilled before drinking. Clear, Light salmon color. Light damp wood aromas. Quite strong strawberry, raspberry and watermelon taste that goes all the way through the long, dry, rock-crusher mineral finish. It was alive and fresh while being smooth and light. Rose wines fill a narrow band of wine drinking and overall they are more similar than most other wines. So if I say this one stands out it says a lot!!! Smooth as silk, lots of flavor and just plain delicious. A GREAT Rose at a good price.
She said: Clear, light orange color. Mild fruity aroma was followed by a gentle, slightly creamy, mouth-feel with a nip of citrus and an exceptional smoothness. The finish was long and tasty. Delicious with the popcorn, but this wine is probably delicious with most foods. A GOOD buy at $20.Comments: Learn more about Bernard Baudry and his son Matthieu’s wines.
