A Rosé is a Rosé is a Rosé

Which pink should you drink? The options are endless. Here are some more of our favorites!

Vin du Bugey-Cerdon “La Cueille” – One of the best-kept secrets of France. For those of you looking for something surprising, joyful, and playful, Bugey has ripe berries, bubbles and just enough acid to balance its sweetness. We still think it’s a party in a glass! Made from Gamay and Poulsard.

Montes Cherub Rosé of Syrah – Lively pink in color. The nose presents tremendous complexity of fresh red fruits such as cherries and raspberries along with tart blackberries and a bit of the pink peppercorn that is typical of Syrah. The medium-bodied palate is juicy and very crisp and has a long finish.

Abbatucci Faustine Rosé – To those of you who think rosé is a summer beverage, try this beauty any time of the year and see how you feel. Apricot, candied tangerine rind, and flowers of the maquis await you. Certified biodynamic. Made from the Corsican indeginous varietal Sciacarellu.

Trinquevedel Tavel Rosé – Dry and fresh, it is the ideal Tavel for our taste, balancing the bold, stony flavors of the southern Rhône with a certain Provençal graciousness. Grenache Noir, Cinsault & Clairette.

Chevalier Grolleau Rosé – A beautifully elegant rosé quaffer made of Grolleau grapes from the Loire. Subtle cherry and strawberry fruits, mineral with bright yet not racy acidity. Excellent finish.

Pierre Sparr Brut Rosé – Salmon pink color; fresh aromas of soft red berries, predominantly strawberry and raspberry. This rosé of Pinot Noir is round and fruity with hints of peach; the flavors are intense, with lively acidity framed by a well-made structure and delicate bubbles. Smooth, clean and dry finish.

Fontsainte Gris de Gris – Don’t forget about this WW favorite! A jewel in terms of price, quality, and consistency. I’m tellin’ ya, you can’t go wrong. You’d have to spend much, much more to find anything as good. Grenache Gris, Grenache Noir & Mourvèdre. We have mags too!
