-Vinous Media “2019 Rosé Round up”, by Josh Raynolds, Aug ’19 gave 90 points to Buil & Giné 2018 Giné Rosat. "Lurid pink. Vibrant red berry and floral scents show very good clarity and pick up spice and mineral nuances with air. Fleshy and energetic on the palate, offering zesty raspberry and pomegranate flavors and a touch of spicy white pepper. Lingers with impressive tenacity and focus, leaving a suave floral pastille note behind."
