La Vieille Ferme Rosé

Posted by

La Vieille Ferme Rosé is a blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Shiraz/Syrah. Despite its modest 3.6 rating on Vivino, it comes recommended by the Telegraph newspaper and proved to be a pleasant discovery for me given I am not into Rosé.

The wine has a floral aroma and the taste distinguishes itself with its dryness, a quality that isn’t always associated with rosé wines. The flavour is peachy/nectarine, offering a fresh and fruity experience that works well both as a standalone drink and as an accompaniment to food.

This rosé is available at several major supermarkets in the UK, including Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Waitrose, Iceland, Morrisons and Asda. There has been a recent uptick in its price. I bought this one for only £5.25 from Asda (discounted 25% off from from £7), but it now it usually sells for around £7.75. Morrisons is offering it at a slightly lower price of £7.50, indicating that it pays to compare prices.
