Tasting Notes

Bursting with watermelon, this classic Rhône rosé will have you dreaming of summer orchards and fat, ripe, fresh off-the-tree fruit. Refreshing acidity plays well against the floral, berry palate. Great for summer salads with herbs, poached chicken, and light cheeses.

Staff Pick Notes

The days are getting longer, we're springing forward, and the first of the season's Rosé's are starting to hit the shelves at Astor. It's official. #SummerIsComing. The Domaine de la Bastide "Figue" Rosé seems to be a winner and crowd favorite year after year. After tasting this new vintage I can proclaim that this year won't be an exception. It's a beautiful pale salmon pink hue, similar to what you'd find in Provence, but with a rich depth of flavor, brimming with ripe strawberries, peaches and watermelon. Very dry with vibrant acidity, this is a great rosé for ringing in the new season.

The distinguished Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas appellations are both...

Rhône

Prestige in the north, value in the south: that’s the quick version of the Rhône story. Southern village appellations produce a dizzying stylistic range of delicious wines, while the prices for northern “trophy” bottles can be dizzyingly high. If you like smoky, leathery, earthy, macho red wines, however, the wines of the northern Rhône are well worth it. Prestigious northern Rhône appellations...

Syrah

We'd like to clear this up once and for all: the Shiraz grape is genetically identical to Syrah. Australian winemakers put "Shiraz" on the map (and, many would argue, vice versa), and the term is now used throughout much of the New World. Let it never be said, however, that Shiraz and Syrah are the same thing: the region in which the grape is grown determines much about the flavor of the wine it...
