Aroma/Nose

There is a nice peach scent to this wine followed by some citrus. Has a slight alcohol burn as well.

This is a lighter bodied yet crisp rosé. It has a slight creaminess in texture, which I found to be different. Not thick by any means but a softness to the feeling of the wine on the palate.

Tasting

The flavor profile of this wine is full of bright peach, strawberry and cream. Shortly followed by a citrus note.

Finish

This wine has a medium finish that consists of a real mineral like component.

This Domaine Loubejac Rose was the first wine to kick off our family vacation in Disney and I loved it. The Domaine Loubejac Rosé was a nice Rosé to help beat the Orlando heat. Lots of fruit forward flavor in this wine with a touch of cream.

Bright and fresh with aromas of strawberry cream, white peach, and raspberry. Soft and lively on the palate with a grapefruit-citrus accent carrying away the refreshing finish.
