Produced from Syrah (70%) and Grenache, this is the third vintage that we have imported this incredible Rosé Gem, and I have to admit that this may not only be the best that has come from this estate, but is one of my favorite Rosés in the store. The aromatics are as if you are walking through a field of ripe strawberries while in the mouth, it is rich, lush, yet dry and crisp, with a mouth watering finish. This will be one of our house Rosés for the month according to the Guys. 11.0% to 14.0% ABV [Jim Barr]

If you love deeply colored rosés, this will blow you away. Syrah and Grenache make for a chewy, medium-boded wine, with strawberry notes. Saignée method. Lovely with southern French cuisine.

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.
