A great tasting!
The favourites were rather diverse.......
Many loved the Brut Rosado Cava from Segura Vuidas: very refreshing and full of flavour.
Rupert was 'disgusted' that so many liked the 'Blush' P-G (the young apprentice has so much to learn!)
By far the favourite Rose was Domaine Lansac. This pretty little pale pink rose is just so fresh and appealing.
As for the Dagueneau's..........Serge's was as ever most popular, no one could quite get their head around Didier's (though maybe this was just because of the £37 price ticket!)
