Maybe the food wasn't quite the right match (beef and beansprout spring rolls and a balsamic/vinegar dip) or maybe the wine is just a tad dull. Whatever; it failed to inspire much beyond the chickens on the label. It's nice enough and perhaps better outside with warmer weather. It is also on offer during the French Wine Showcase promotion Waitrose is currently holding.

Wine Tasting Note: La Vieille Ferme Rosé, 2005, Côtes du Ventoux, Rhone, France.
Waitrose £5.99.
A blend of Grenache and Cinsault (the standard grapes of the region) 'grown high on the slopes of Mount Ventoux'. Pleasant enough, inoffensive, gently fruity. Weighty, reasonable length. Screwcapped. Alcohol 13%. It washed down the food well.
Scribblings Rating -82/100
