I got this because I thought the recent white and red Les Chaberts wines had been good and decent, respectively. I was a little worried at how red its color was, that it might be more forwardly fruity than I like. However, when I opened it, the opposite was true. It seemed to have hardly any flavor at all. I screwed the cap back on, put it back in the fridge, and tasted it again a few hours later. The result was the same.
I tasted this again this evening, a couple days later. While an edge of strawberry fruit was more forward, it still struck me that there was not much to this wine. I suppose it’s Drinkable, but I would guess there are better options for rosés.
