Popped in to The Sampler today as I read that they had Garrus on the enomatic and it was something I wanted to try so long, but was not going to pay for a full bottle. What can I say, it is great and so complex, I really loved it. Still would not pay bottle price. It was presented next to a 2014 Meursault Perrieres, which was not unlike the Garrus, but the latter will get my vote any day and was also the cheaper of the two. Garrus is a lovely wine though, which I never thought I would say about a rose.
I then had a chat with the store manager about how easy it is to sell rosè with a Provencal colour, while darker ones (like Tavel) don’t sell even though they often offer more complexity
I then bought a red Maury from Domaine des Enfants L’Enfant Perdu), which I have high expectations for.
