Staff Pick Notes

I'm serious about rosé and I think that this is a surprisingly serious rosé. 100% Gamay, with much more color and structure that you'd expect to find in a bottle, this isn't just a light, forgettable summer wine. While it will (yes, absolutely) deliver on freshness and purity of fruit, the wine is textured and mineral in a way that should guarantee it a spot on the dinner table. Chermette always makes rosé as a wine in it's own right, never just bleeding off the reds or using subpar grapes from the harvest. Organically-farmed grapes, with whole-cluster fermentation, minimal (often 0) sulfur addition, and fermentation with indigenous yeasts yields an "entry-level" wine that is complex and so, so drinkable. Pair with olive tapenade, heavy seafood, or Mediterranean fare.

Beaujolais Nouveau is perhaps the most gulpable wine...
