Wine Review: Domaine de Magnaut Euphorie de Rosé 2017



Thanks to Heavenly Spirits I'm reviewing two wines by Domaine de Magnaut out of Gascony, France,and three Armagnacs by Artez. I've already reviewed the Rouge 2014, today I'm doing the Rosé 2017, and on Sunday I'll be sipping on some Armagnac.

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 2017 Euphorie de Rosé is a Cotes de Gascogne that's 100% Syrah and has an ABV of 11.5%. I reviewed the 2016 vintage in May of last year.

The color of the wine is again watermelon pink. On the nose there's a lot of watermelon with notes of sea salt, strawberry candy, and lime peel. It's a medium bodied rosé on the palate with a watery mouthfeel, bright acidity, and surprisingly structured tannin. There's flavors of watermelon, lime, and strawberry on the midpalate but the addition of anise upon swallowing really makes the finish interesting.

For the second year in a row this is a summer chugger that earns a recommendation. I'm going to piss a lot of people off for saying this (and I've been doing that for five years so why stop now?) but put some ice in this wine and forget your worries. Go ahead. It's okay.
