To celebrate the expansion of our Rosé section we are going to pap a few of 'em!
Here is the line-up:
Lobster Cove Chardonnay '09
Before the onslaught of rosés, try our favorite new affordable Chardonnay. It's refreshing to find a great Cali Chard that isn't just another "brand". You'll love the label too.
Paul Thomas Sancerre Rosé '10
On the lean side is this rosé of Pinot Noir from the famous Loire appellation of Sancerre. Lots of mineral, subtle fruit, and proper acidity.
L'Escarelle "Ma Campagne" Rosé '10
Simply a Vin de Pays du Var, a departmental municipality bordering on Provence, this is a rosé of Cinsault that is quite charming and food-friendly.
Pierre Guindon Rosé Coteaux d'Ancenis '10
This rosé of Gamay represents the final bottling of the French wine designation VDQS. It is a beautiful, well-made rosé that will probably qualify for AOC by next year.
Biohof Pratsch Rosé '10
Or, try an organic Austrian rosé of Zweigelt, and acknowledge that Austria is in the game of crafting fine dry rosé with the best of them.
Spindrift Cellars Pinot Noir Rosé '10
The big, full-fruited American rosé in this lineup is a Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon. Very hard to resist this wine.
Batic Rosé '10
Who else is pouring Slovenian rosé this week? Everything about this wines is fascinating, including the bottle. Full-bodied, touch of sugar. Organic.
