I'm trying to get any info on this wine that I can - the subject line is really all that's on the label other than "Dry pink table wine". I'm trying to figure out if it's worth anything, if it's peaked and what the heck it actually is. I haven't seen the bottle so I can't even tell if the "Les Esplanada" is a varietal name made for the blend, or if is a brand name or what. Oh, the other thing is that it was distributed by P. Mouton, so associated with Rothschild maybe? I can't find any info about Pink Bordeaux blends anywhere on this whole interweb. Please help! My friend wants to give it you his mom for Mother's Day but not if it's rotten.

Thanks,

Layla

Welcome to the Board Layla. I would not give any 31 year old Rose' to anyone as a gift, much less as a Mother's Day gift. I don't care who made it. Sorry.
