2019 Irouléguy Rosé

Domaine Arretxea

What a surprise, finding such a lovely rose in such an unlikely place. Well, it does heat up down there in the Basque country, doesn't it, and sometimes they might need cooling off.
     This rosé accomplishes two things rarely accomplished in the galaxy of rosés. One, it is flavorful without heaviness, and two, it is lively without too much acidity. Plus, it is bone dry, and the blend of Tannat and Cabernet Franc provides new flavors to pass by your taste buds. See if they don't appreciate it.

About Southwest

map of Southwest

Tucked away beneath Bordeaux and buffeted by the Pyrenees to the south, this expansive region of France, commonly known as the Southwest, is home to a diverse number of viticulture and gastronomic traditions as well as cultures. Though Cahors might be the most well known (and easiest to pronounce) appellation from the Southwest, the importance and influence of French Basque culture cannot be underestimated. Irouléguy, the primary appellation of the Basque region of France produces full-bodied, hearty red wines, produced from Tannat grape (known for its tannic qualities). Dry whites from Irouléguy are also produced from Petit and Gros Manseng. Northeast of Irouléguy is the sweet wine-producing appellation of Jurançon. These moelleux wines made from Petit and Gros Manseng have a storied history in France, from being the first wine region to have a vineyard classification, which dates back to the 154th century, to being preferred wine of royalty dating back to the 16th century as well as the French poet Colette.

Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
