Staff Pick Notes

I love a rosé that combines soft textures with a vibrant minerality. Domaine la Colombe fits this description to a tee. A delightfully elegant color matched with a fruit profile ranging from white peach to strawberry, this is the kind of rosé that is too easy to drink.

Grown in Provence's newest appelation, the Coteaux de Varois, Domaine la Colombe is a hidden gem in a sea of pink. If you are not traveling to the South of France this year, at least we can drink like we are!
