La Galope Gascogne Rosé 2023

The La Galope Gascogne Rosé 2023 is a wine I found selling for $9.99 at a local supermarket, a web check showed this wine selling for an average of $13. Cascogne is located between the Pyrenees and the Atlantic Ocean in southwest France.

This is designated a Comté Tolsan IGP wine which is one of the 5 regional IGP regions as opposed to AOC regions. This area is well-known for fortified wines but has distinguished Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay wines. Red wines make up about 10% of the wines produced.

The La Galope Gascogne Rosé 2023 is part of a wine brand that also includes a Sauvignon Blanc, a Chardonnay, and a Malbec. Le Domaine de l’Herré is the producing winery.

This Rosé is usually made from Merlot and another Red grape in a blend. There are no 2023 vintage production notes but past vintages have included Cabernet Sauvignon and local indigenous grapes.

The alcohol content is a mild 12%.

The La Galope Gascogne Rosé 2023 Tasting Notes

The color is pretty, pink with a touch of amber. The nose is ripe fruit and rose petals. The La Galope Gascogne Rosé 2023 is ripe, juicy, yet well-balanced.

The Rosé tastes like cherry with a slightly hard edge, nectarine, a hint of orange, faint cream, and strawberry. The mid-palate hints at pear, apricot, and cranberry.

The acidity is balanced by the body of the wine and allows this Rosé to have good length.

The Summary

  • The La Galope Gascogne Rosé 2023 is an excellent summer sipper,
  • You can pay more for a Rosé but I find value-priced Rosé wines are excellent bang for the buck wines.
