    "One of the best wine producers in Provence" ~ Robert Parker, Jr.

    Rosé is perfect because it goes with almost anything. Without further ado, from one of Provence's top producers, we bring you Chateau Routas Rouvière Rosé. We think you'll love it. Belly up to a beautifully chilled bottle of this Rouvière and enjoy a platter of assorted charcuterie, some French Picholine olives, and crusty bread with a couple of disks of Cabecou de Poitou cheese. Some days, that is all we need. If you're not hungry yet, it is a delicious apéritif all by itself. If you're in the mood for more, the lovely ripe fruit, floral and herb notes and perfect minerally acid of this Provencal treasure pairs gorgeously with grilled shrimp, roast pork, fish, salads and even roast turkey! This Chateau Routas is terrific with a light meal of tarragon grilled shrimp over a composed salad. Throw on some grilled asparagus and a lemony vinaigrette and you can't go wrong. Grilled pork tenderloin with an apple-ginger chutney will bring out its fruit like a pro. If you didn't start with the delicious Cabecou de Poitou, it is a wonderful close to what will surely have been a memorable meal. Venez nos amis! Buvons un peu de Rosé!

    James Suckling:  "A very pretty, elegant rosé with light plum and peach character. Light pepper. Medium-bodied, fresh and clean. Attractive lightly bitter finish. Complex." May 2017
