Tasting Notes: Never pretentious, and always seeking an elegant rosé, James Petit’s 2017 Bourgueil Rosé is probably the most straightforwardly pretty of our 2017 Loire Valley offerings. It is quite pale and silvery in appearance; 100% direct-press Cabernet Franc, with a pure and lovely nose of fresh-picked wild strawberries and a gentle fresh herb edge. Linear and driving on the palate, it displays excellent tension, good concentration, and not an ounce of excess flesh.
