2007 Domaine du Bosc Rosé, Vin de Pays d’Oc

06212009aLike wine? Enjoy Summer? Drink Rosé… and by that, I don’t mean go out and buy that gross sweet White Zinfandel crap. Buy the stuff the locals drink all Summer in France, Spain and parts of Italy – the gorgeous Rosés.

One of the best areas for rosé production in France is the Languedoc area in the South of France… and who doesn’t want to sit in a café there sipping something like this?

This wine, which is a blend of 70% Cinsault and 30% Syrah, has a beautiful light salmon colour to it (I’m sure it would pair incredibly well with some of our local fish as well). The nose shows light strawberry and lemon and a big sip gives up a crisp bit of the light berry along with red raspberry and a squish of lemon and bit of herb (maybe some lavender or rosemary). It’s so tasty and refreshing for when the warmer weather hits.

~$23 at Kitsilano Wine Cellars here in Vancouver.

    The wine sounds superb – how can I get some for my private cellar?

    Sean, you are all about the Rosé right now, and I don't blame you. We had a great value Rioja, available at Alberni store – Beronia Reserva – $23. It is worth a try.

    Very bitter aftertaste, that simple.
