Bouquet of Rosés Vol. 2 - June 2020

Collines Du Bourdic, Cévennes Marselan  

Region: Cévennes IGP - Languedoc, France

Varietal: Marselan

In brief: This delicate expression of Marselan makes you feel like you're drinking something too pretty to be in a glass. It's linear acidity is complimented by soft, fresh notes of peonies. It is bone dry and ready for shellfish.

 

Cantine Rao, Silva Rosa

Region: IGP Terre del Volturno - Campania, Italy

Varietal: Pallagrello Nero

In brief: We have been waiting for this wine all year. Pallagrello Nero has never tasted so good. This wine is too elegant for its own good. Bone dry with some pretty flowers just waiting for mussels. 


Le Poussin, Rosé

Region: Pays d'Oc IGP - Languedoc-Roussillon, France

Varietals: Grenache, Cinsault 

In Brief: It's like a fresh carton of strawberries, white peach, and orange zest. 


Clos Fornelli, Vin de Corse Rosé

Region: AOC Vin de Corse - Corsica, France

Varietal: Sciaccarellu

In brief: Bone dry yet quite round throughout the palate. 100% mineral driven and so chic. Barely perceivable notes of honeydew and flour de sel in the background. We love Corsican rosé.


Holloran Vineyards, Pinot Noir Rosé

Region: Willamette Valley AVA - Oregon

Varietal: Pinot Noir

In brief: So perky, so fruity. This wine will cheer you up. It’s full of ripe strawberries, yellow peaches, and bright acidity. 


Commanderie de Peyrassol, La Croix Des Templiers Rosé

Region: IGP Vin de la Méditérranée - Provence, France

Varietals: Cinsault, Grenache, Rolle (Vermentino)

In Brief: A delicate blend of strawberries, freshly cut roses, and Mediterranean air. Don't over think it, just have a seat on the porch and enjoy.
