Tasting Notes

Jubilant red strawberries jump from the glass on this cheerful rosé. The Coteaux Varois is a smaller appellation in the center of Provence. Composed of Cinsaut and Carignan growing in chalky soils, this ultra-fresh wine has fine structure and a fruity profile. A touch of grape tannins on the finish means this is great with a meal, especially alongside pesto, vegetables, herbed chicken, and prosciutto.

Staff Pick Notes

Heading to the south of France this summer? Me, neither. Let's pretend. This lovely Provençal rosé will put you in a Mediterranean state-of-mind. Fragrant and fresh on the nose, this wine delivers strawberry, mineral, and savory white pepper notes, with just a hint of smoke. Syrah, Grenache, and a little Cabernet Sauvignon are the players here. In addition to the fruity characteristics we would expect, the chalky-stony soil in which these grapes are grown has brought a refreshing acidity to the surface. A delightful way to start your meal. Pair with charcuterie and cheese, grilled veggies, olives.... think early evening snacks before the big dinner.
