- Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2016 Product #31771 (In Stock)
Our first 2016 rosé is a winner! It’s equal parts Syrah and Carignan, grown and harvested fresh just for rosé. After a few hours of fermentation, the juice is pressed off the black grape skins, giving it a just-right amount of color and structure while allowing the juice to retain all of its natural freshness and vibrancy.
As soon as you see this in your glass, you know you’re in for a treat. It’s a beautifully transparent salmon pink that almost sparkles in sunshine. Aromas of fresh picked strawberries and crushed red fruits – raspberries and cherries – get a lift from floral accents and a hint of citrus rind. In the mouth, it’s bright and crisp with loads of berry fruit and just a touch of mineral, showcasing the short 2016 vintage’s silky texture and ripe fruit. The acids come up on the finish and make your mouth water, leaving you looking for a little bite to eat or another refreshing sip. Drink this on its own anytime you like, or pair it with anything from smoked salmon to fruited chicken salad. “Berry” delicious!
- French Libation Rose Pamplemousse NV Product #31029 (In Stock)
For years on hot summer days in France's deep south, locals built a refreshing pre-dinner drink from local rosé wine lightened up with a big squeeze of grapefruit juice. Served on ice with or without a spash of soda, Rosé Pamplemousse (French for grapefruit) was a local favorite to enjoy with family and friends.
Over the past few years, pre-prepared Pamplemousse rosé has swept France as a delicious, fun, low-alcohol, treat to be enjoyed anywhere, anytime. Now you can get in on the fun, too! Our Rose Pamplemousse starts with cheerful dry pink wine from southern France, leavened with a touch of spritz and all natural grapefruit and peach flavors. Unlike most examples, there's no added sugar or syrup here, so the big, ripe, rosé and grapefruit flavors finish dry, crisp, and clean. Drink cold from the refrigerator, on ice, and with or without a pour of sparkling water or Prosecco for a fun and delicious warm weather pick-me-up.
- Ch Vignelaure Rose Coteaux d'Aix En Provence 2015 Product #31145 (In Stock)
A blend of 40% Grenache - bled from red wine tanks - plus 30% direct press Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The texture is the real story here, round and plush and mouthfilling but still light and fresh. You'll love it right now as a late-Summer refresher, but hold on to some for end-of-year feasts and even for Summer 2017 - because this will just get better with time!
"Pale orange. Aromas of orange zest, strawberry and white flowers show very good clarity and a subtle mineral element. Juicy and focused, offering ripe strawberry and tangerine flavors that put on weight with aeration. Fleshy, focused and dry on the penetrating finish, which shows good, nervy cut and minerally persistence." Vinous (Reynolds) 90 points
"Editors Choice! Coming from a remote estate on the edge of the Lubéron mountains in the north of Provence, this wine is impressively rich. It gains great concentration and structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah in the blend. Full of ripe red fruits, it is dense at the end."Wine Enthusiast 93 points
