Philip Lardot - Kontakt Rosé 2021
A new wine for Philip Lardot is this mineral and deep rosé made from 100% Pinot Noir. 2021 was an unusually cold and difficult vintage for the area so making a red Pinot Noir would not have given a wine of the desired quality for Philip. Instead the decision was made to do a very light skin contact rosé, some direct press, some only 24 hours, which was pressed and barrel aged for over six months and bottled in May.
Basically to point out that even a simpler, entry level wine of Philip Lardot receives a more luxurious treatment than many domaines give their top wines.
A light colored, mineral driven rosé tot accompany light meals or enjoy on a summer night in the garden, on the beach or park.
