Wine Review: This pale pink colored wine from the Roussillon region of France opens with a fruity red grapefruit, strawberry and melon bouquet. All of the Chapoutier labels include the appellation, name of the wine, vintage and whether it is red or white written in braille. It is light bodied, dry and refreshing with balance acidity. Its flavors of mild grapefruit, lime and minerality are a bit tame but enjoyable and the finish lasts a good long time with some light lime notes. I would serve it with fried shrimp. – Mark

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
