You know how some people say they love all their children equally, but you secretly know that they prefer one over all the others? That's how I feel about dry rosés from Provence. I'd sing their praises every day of the week. Just don't
tell the Alsatian wines that, and while you're at it, try to keep it from the Chablis.
A lot of people think of rosés as something you only drink in the summer, and even the liquor stores tend to carry fewer rosé wines in wintertime. But I don't give a hoot. To me, a dry rosé is refreshing year round and can even be served with winter's heartier fare.
This week's wine pick is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah grapes.
Tasting notes: Red Berries, Citrus
Pair with: Cilantro and Bacon Pasta, Stuffed Chicken, Fish
Cost: $13.95 CDN
Perks: I could picture this wine being served at a wedding. It's got an elegant label and at that price, it won't bust the budget.
Cons: Not everyone will be so keen to drink it in the dead of winter. Is that really a con though? More for you.
Overall Glossless Rating (based on totally unscientific and arbitrary values): 9/10
