Wine Review: Domaine de Magnaut Euphorie de Rosé 2016

Domaine de Magnaut Euphorie de Rosé 2016

Thanks to Heavenly Spirits I'm reviewing five wines by Domaine de Magnaut out of Gascony, France. I started with their Equilibre de Manseng 2014 and now I'm on to Euphorie de Rosé 2016, which will be followed by Les Hauts de Boilin 2014Manseng Sec 2014, and Tannat 2014.

Paul Scott of Heavenly Spirits says: Domaine de Magnaut is a family owned winery in the Armagnac Tenareze region of Gascony. They also produce Armagnac and Floc. Jean Marie Terraube and his wife run the winery and four diverse vineyards. They harvest Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah (for rosé), gros and petite Manseng in all four vineyards. Most of their production is sold from the winery. They are Designated "vigneron Independant".

The 2016 Euphorie de Rosé is a Cotes de Gascogne that's 100% Syrah and has an ABV of 12%.

The color of the wine is watermelon pink. It's very, very pretty. The nose is lead by lime peel followed by strawberries and raspberries. On the palate it's a full bodied rosé with a little touch of sweetness and a candied mouthfeel. There's flavors of strawberries, raspberries, limes, and chalk. Those flavors ride an impressively long finish with a popping acidity and a silky coating of candy on your teeth.

This is a big and juicy rosé and it's pretty awesome! My only concern, and it's a legitimate one, is that you could easily finish the bottle too quickly and now you've gotten yourself drunk while summer grilling and you're going to make a fool of yourself at the dinner table. "Hey... hey... can you pash the jduwihqkl?"
