Tasting Notes: Round and refreshing with crisp acidity, notes of strawberry and a touch of honey highlight this Rhone rosé. The approachability and bright fruit make this a great choice for people who generally pick up the Provence rosés.
Tasting Notes: Produced near Aix, this is one of the prettiest rosés on the market. Perfect salmon color, beautiful mineral and fruit balance with a mélange of pear, peach and strawberry. Grilled seafood and goat cheese just sparkle with this wine.
Tasting Notes: 30% grenache noir, 70% syrah. Ballet-slipper pink on appearance, its nose is of summer red fruits. On the palate there is zippy citrus, and melon flavors. This wine is more than ready to convert anyone still harboring rosé reservations.
Tasting Notes: Inviting aromas reveal new complexities every time you revisit the glass . . . unfolding into melon, then peach, then a pink grapefruit note. The palate is bone dry, yet carries nice weight and a creamy roundness that precisely balances the minerality and tension through the middle. Delicious.
Tasting Notes: A fastidiously made organic wine. Longer skin contact produces a deep crimson hue. Black and white grenache, cinsault and syrah are beautifully blended to produce a full, rich palate that can handle a platter of roast beef.
Tasting Notes: Wonderfully Burgundian. Lighter in color in the glass, with bright ruby through and through. Elegance and delicacy are the perfect descriptors for both the nose and palate. A lovely example of why many people feel that Burgundy is the home of pinot noir.
Tasting Notes: The areas around the town of Beaune are justly famous for their elegance and sense of terroir. This is a prime example of Beaune character. Medium-bright ruby throughout the glass. Plenty of dark-berry fruit are exhibited on the nose and palate. Good acidity keeps everything in balance. Lovely now, with lots of potential for aging.
Tasting Notes: An excellent example of real Burgundy that dispels the myth that Bourgogne is always expensive. The light ruby color is eye-catching. There is a bouquet of rose petal, wild red fruit, and “la garrigue.” Flavors of not-quite-ripe cherry and raspberry balance with subtle hints of allspice and minerality. The finish is lengthy with supple tannins and sweet/tart acidity. The wine is nice now, but will develop for 2-3 more years. It’s a great value!
Tasting Notes: A vibrant and fresh example of Cotes du Rhone leading with bright brambly flavors of raspberry and red cherry. The structure of the wine consists of baking spice and black pepper. A great value Cotes du Rhone.
