Château Saint-Maur’s 2021 Excellence rosé wine: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

A beautiful pale colour with salmon hues.

Nose

Expressive, the nose blends exotic fragrances of mango, vine peach and citrus fruit.

Palate

Very elegant, the palate is seduced by this wine’s intense peach aromas, its freshness and its delicate salinity on the finish.

Food and wine pairing

This Excellence rosé 2021 by Château Saint-Maur will pair beautifully with meats (a hanger steak and veal sweetbread served with a girolle mushroom sauce), vegetables (courgette flowers stuffed with Broccio cheese), fish (grilled red mullet with a Creole sauce, tuna steak with herbs) or even cheeses and desserts (mozzarella di Buffala, lychee sorbet)

Service

For an optimal tasting experience, serve between 6 and 7°C.
