Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone Rose 2020
There aren't many things we like more than the quenching, food-friendly style that is classic to Rosé's home in southern France. It has delicious fruit like currants, raspberry, and white cherry; the floral notes and clean, beautiful balance don't hurt either.... Offer it as an aperitif, and swim around in its gorgeous flavors. If you're outside, grill up some salt-and-pepper halibut steaks and drizzle them with a melted lemon and tarragon butter. Or, for something on the sweeter side, marinate chicken pieces in apricot jam, white wine, garlic and scallions, and then grill to perfection. If dinner's inside, make it Maryland style crab cakes with a summer slaw of cucumber ribbons, green cabbage, and multicolored carrots. You'll be glad you did.
Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Vivid onion skin color. High-pitched red berry and floral aromas show fine definition and a hint of spiciness. Bright, sappy and focused in the mouth, offering juicy raspberry, blood orange and bitter cherry flavors that deepen through the back half. Finishes with firm, spicy cut and energetic lift, leaving a repeating red berry note behind. Drinking window: 2021-2023." Jun 2021
Wine Enthusiast: "Raspberry and bramble notes are delicate on the nose but intensify on the palate of this juicy, watermelon-kissed wine. A deep salmon-pink in color, it's a full-bodied but refreshing dry wine that finishes on a lingering note of sour-cherry pastille." Sep 2021
Winery: "Eye: Clear, brilliant and fresh. Nose: Fresh with an expressive nose of red fruits and citrus; notes of raspberry and redcurrant. Palate: Fruity, fine and round. Overall: A well-balanced and elegant wine. Pair with starters, grilled fish, white meat, poultry."
