Reply to "Complex Rosé"

I love their reds and Tempier's rosé is very good, but too expensive for me. Coincidentally the 2018 was released here by our gubmint monopoly for CDN$42 (US$32).

LDH. If a partially oxidized rosé is complex, I'll take simple please. I've only had one vintage of this wine so I don't know if that's the way it's always made or if it's just all over the map inconsistent like their white rioja(s). It could just be because they release it 10+ years after the vintage. I have little tolerance for wines made in an oxidized style anymore. I realize this is heresy to many who love this winery.

Speaking of heresy. GregT
