Staff Pick Notes

Here you have it: that classic Provence rosé! When in doubt, drinkers typically opt for lighter rosé, which has led some producers to make what amounts to very bland acidic water. The "MiP" rosé is very clean and refreshing, but has something else going on, too. If you're looking for Whispering Angel, this is the perfect substitute, at a much better price. 60% Cinsault, 20% Syrah, and 20% Grenache are left to age on the lees for 4 months after cold fermentation. The resulting wine is crisp with a light texture and easy-peasy to drink. With fruit flavors that are reminiscent of a Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc (think Sancerre) this is a crowd-pleasing fun-time wine.

Glossary

Grenache

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 will produce. Typically, New World Shiraz yields bigger, fruitier wines than the the peppery Syrahs...

Provence

Provence has some of the best vine-growing territory in the world, with a perfect Mediterranean climate tempered by the cooling effects of the sea. The region produces a broad range of wines, the majority of which pair effortlessly with the light, herb-infused cuisine of Provence. Bandol, arguably the most significant appellation in Provence, produces spicy, earthy, rich red wines. These tend to be big and well-structured, relying on the Mourvèdre grape for their power. Vines in Bandol are...
