Le Pommier Rosé 2018

Le Pommier Rosé 2018

This salmon pink wine has strawberry and gooseberry aromas on the nose with a rich and fruit forward texture in the mouth. The wine is crisp and lingering inviting you to have more and more and more ...

Great summertime refresher and works well with salads and white meat dishes.
