Bodvar - N0. 7 Rosé 2019
Bodvar - N0. 7 Rosé 2019 (88 TSW)
It is still sunny in the Netherlands, but it is a lot cooler. Next week the weather forecast is a lot better with higher temperatures. At those nice temperatures, rosé is the perfect drink to enjoy in the garden or by the pool or just on your balcony. This blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah from the Provence region is a very good choice.
My notes on this rosé:
In the glass a pale salmon Provence color.
On the medium nose aromas of raspberries, red berries and strawberries with nice hints of white flowers, orangepeel and citrus.
On the palate dry, medium bodied, elegant and round in the mouth with fresh crispy acidity. Flavours of stonefruit, strawberries and citrus with a medium+ mineral light bitter finish. Can’t wait for next week.
The vineyard is located in the perimeter of the Grand Site Sainte-Victoire. Aware of this privileged geographical location and caring become of future generations, the Vignerons du Mont Sainte-Victoire embarked on a strong sustainable development policy that emphasises the preservation of biodiversity.
In 2005, the typicality of Sainte-Victoire wine was recognized with the creation of the denomination Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire. This rosé has a Swedisch touch.
Bodvar is part of the Grönstedt and Hafström families, who boast 170 years of family tradition in the premium beverage and tobacco industries. The family founded the legendary Grönstedts Cognac in 1846, which today remains one of the world’s top brands. Johan Daniel Grönstedt had a specific weakness for French beverages, so in tribute and to revive his passion, Grönstedts released a classic Champagne bearing the family’s name. Another side is the Lindqvist family, importers of exclusive wines that began in the 19th century, while Bodvar’s great-great-grandfather started one of the largest cigar brands in Sweden, the Hafströms. Today, Hafströms of Sweden produces an exclusive assortment of hand-rolled premium cigars.
