L' Esprit Du Lac Vieilles Vignes Dry Rosé 2021 Review

The label may make you think this is a French rosé, but make no mistake –– this is all Greece, and all Xinomavro, a grape native to this land and, as a red wine, both big and bold. Yet with this bottling, Kir-Yianni has successfully made a light and refreshing rosé using this muscular red grape; The light nature of the wine is apparent on the nose with refreshing aromas of juicy peaches and ripe strawberries. The palate is filled with bracing acidity that lifts the wine up and keeps it refreshing, while still allowing you to enjoy a little bit of depth of fruit. A gem of a bottle.
