This is a fruity style of rose that finishes dry, clean and crisp. The aromas of fresh mixed berries and sparkling mineral water fairly jump from the glass when poured. The mouth watering middle is filled with juicy watermelon and ripe red fruits that persist on the lingering, palate teasing finish. Delicious and refreshing.

This is the rosé you've been waiting for! Crisp, dry, easydrinking, and bargain-priced, Colombe is the customer (and staff!) favorite that was literally on the slow boat from France... until now. The awesome new vintage is here! Minerally and delicious, with that coveted light color and Provence provenance, Colombe is a warm-weather staple. Perfect for pool parties, weddings, or just relaxing with a good book, this versatile yet sophisticated Colombe is a Provencal powerhouse. Pick up a case and Instagram away #roséallday! Or ignore the hype and just enjoy alfresco.

Rosé season has begun and our latest container carrying the finest selections from Europe has landed just in time. While I am a booster of drinking rosé all year round, spring time does augur in the new releases. The Domaine la Colombe was the first of many rosés I’ve tasted over the last month and it immediately set the tone. The wine embodies the classic spirit of the season. It’s a wholly unpretentious, poolside sipping wine. It is a lip smacking, refreshing style rosé, that glides across the palate and with a lightly savory finish encouraging the next sip. Rose petal, spring berries, and a touch of watermelon grace the mineral driven finish. Put a case of this in the pantry and plan on serving it regularly.

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

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:

Provence

- Provence encompasses the southeastern portion of France that borders the Mediterranean. The largest appellation in the region is the Cotes de Provence that spans 49,600 acres of land in and around Marseilles. Thirteen different varietals are grown in this appellation with the most important grapes being Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, and Mouvedre. While much of the production is dry rose, there are many more serious wines being made from the area. Some of the most important smaller appellations within Provence include Bandol, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, and Coteaux Varois.
