2008 Tessier Cheverny Rosé (Previously $13)

SKU #1049125

This little baby is a real charmer! Made up of Pinot Noir and Gamay, there are blasting aromatics of bright, spicy red fruits and just a touch of creamy texture through the finish. Definitely a lighter style of rosé, but retaining depth and structure. Fantastic for a summer salad or just on its own.

A delicious blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay, this wine fits the bill for a classic, more lightly styled Rose. Classic nose of tart strawberries and raspberries with a slight touch of minerality. Clean on the palate with bright red fruits, crisp acidity and a nice, long, lingering finish. I served it with prosciutto wrapped cantaloup. I even managed to impress Gary and Cindy Westby with this wine. Voila!
Top Value!

This is my favorite rosé at K&L, and perfect for the Indian summer. On the nose, it reminds me of a Provencal rose, and it is brimming with lavender aromatically. The contrast is the flavor - all Loire cool fruit and a very refreshing finish. This is a favorite aperitif for the backyard that can also pair well with all of the tastes of late summer - tomato salads and grilled chicken... Yum!

The Loire Valley in France is such a treasure trove of great wines: still and sparkling, red, white, and, yes, even rosé. This wine, from Domaine Philippe Tessier is a blend of Gamay and Pinot Noir. It has a somewhat floral nose of rose petals and violets. The wine is perfectly dry and crisp with lovely minerality and tart, red fruits like wild raspberry and strawberry. Perfectly paired with cold roast chicken or Nicoise salad. Enjoy this all summer long.

A winner. Presumably Gamay with a hint of PN? Whatever the grape breakdown, this is thirst quenching, delicious rosé for a warm day.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Loire

- Of all of the French wine producing regions, the Loire might produces the greatest variety of wines. They range from still to sparkling, very dry and acidic to hearty sweet, and clear in color to a deep purple. The diversity of wine produced in this region is due in part to its dynamic climate, which ranges from Continental to Mediterranean. This region is best known for Sauvignon blanc, Chenin blanc and Cabernet Franc. The most famous areas in the Loire Valley may be Sancerre and Vouvray.
