"One of the finest roses from this team yet,... a downright classy beauty..." ~ Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine AdvocateOn a hot summer day, there aren't many things we like more than a cold glass of Rose, especially when it has delicious fruit like currants, raspberry, and white cherry like this E. Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone Rose. The floral notes and clean, beautiful balance don't hurt either... Offer it as a heat-busting aperitif, and swim around in its gorgeous flavors. If you're outside, grill up some salt-and-pepper halibut steaks and drizzle them with a melted lemon and tarragon butter. Or, for something on the sweeter side, marinate chicken pieces in apricot jam, white wine, garlic and scallions, and then grill to perfection. If dinner's inside, make it Maryland style crab cakes with a summer slaw of cucumber ribbons, green cabbage, and multicolored carrots. You'll be glad you did.
Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "One of the finest roses from this team yet, the 2015 Cotes du Rhone Rose from Guigal (60% Grenache, 30% Cinsault and 10% Syrah) is a downright classy beauty that gives up lots of white cherry, currants and floral notes in a medium-bodied, ultra pure and seamless style. It will keep nicely for 6-12 months. Drink 2016." May 2016
