At its price point, I can't think of a finer rosé.
Even at other price points, does rosé get much better than Baudry's?
Have you tried the 2011 yet Mark?

Bodegas Faustino, Faustino VII Rose, Rioja 2009
Black cherry, blackberry, strawberry, with hints of leather and spice on the finish. Very nice fruit and body, a very satisfying rose. ***
Should also give a shout out to my notes in the Goodbye Ryan thread, and the awesome Baudry Chinon Rose 2010!

Literally my first word on tasting this was WOW! What a great blend of berry and tropical fruit tones. There's great balance as well, with the wine drinking so easily I thought it was evaporating in the glass. Amazingly refreshing and really just fabulous. This is my favorite Rosé, eclipsing even the vaunted Baudry.

A blend of Grenache (50%), Mourvèdre (15%), Clairette (13%), Picpoul (12%), and Syrah (10%)
Bright cherry red in the glass. A bit darker than I am accustomed to seeing in a rose.
Cheesy, spicy on the nose.
Medium weight, cheesy, apple, raspberry, cherry, good acidity, clean and refreshing, juicy, with a bitter bite.
Rather bitter on the finish.
Weighing in at 14 abv, which, to my mind, is rather high.
Purchased at $15.95 (Canadian).

I don't think I have ever seen a bottle of this on sale so I am quite excited about it.
