While we transition into summertime, our Wine Wednesday picks are rosés. Rosés are popular, particularly during the hotter months, as they are cool and refreshing. France, Italy, and Spain, are best known for superb rosé production, but many American wineries have started creating fine rosés as well.
Côtes du Rhône Rose 2013
Côtes du Rhône Rosé 2013. This affordable yet first-rate French rosé has fruity, raspberry notes and a citrus nose. It is well balanced and has won worldwide blind tastings. Serve this highly praised and refreshing rosé on a warm evening while dining al fresco! It is versatile and will pair excellently with starters ranging from spicy chipotle chargrilled shrimp kabobs to crisped baguettes with classic, creamy brie. The 2013 Cotes du Rhone Rosé is sure to be your go-to for summer celebrations and casual weeknight dining alike.
