Château de Sours Bordeaux Rosé 2011, France (~£11 Private Cellar, Goedhuis, Bon Coeur Fine Wines)
Really not sure about this wine. There’s a fleshy side to it, with quite full raspberry and plum fruit, and a citrus tang to keep it fresh, but the bottle I tried was very gawky and sulphur-laden. Think it will emerge from this adolescent phase, but for the moment…???
(tried the Finest* Domaine de Sours Rosé 2011 at the Tesco tasting in early May, and it was far more friendly – £7.99, worth a B at least)

Tagus Creek Shiraz/Trincadeira Rosé 2010, Tejo, Portugal (£6.49 Asda, Waitrose)
Soft, sweet-fruited style, with juicy red berry flesh tinged with spice and some chewy tannin on the finish – this almost want to be red wine… B(+)
