    We love Julia Child, and she said "Rosés can be served with anything". Take that notion and combine it with this mouthful of Rosé and you have an instant winner winelovers. Fabuleux!

    If you're not hungry yet, it is a delicious apéritif all by itself. We love nothing better than to belly up to a beautifully chilled bottle of this Provencal Rosé and enjoy a platter of assorted charcuterie, some French Picholine olives, and crusty bread with a couple of disks of Cabecou de Poitou cheese. Or, to echo the creaminess of the wine, a bowl of fresh fish chowder with roasted corn sprinkled on top. Some days, that is all we need. If you're in the mood for more, the lovely fresh fruit, floral and spice notes and perfect minerality of this Rosé pairs gorgeously with grilled shrimp, roast pork, fish, salads and even roast turkey! Shop now so you won't have to for the big meal in November… And for these days when the mercury is high, this L'Opale is terrific with a light meal of tarragon grilled shrimp over a composed salad. Throw on some grilled asparagus and a lemony vinaigrette and you can't go wrong. Grilled pork tenderloin with an apple-ginger chutney will bring out the citrus notes beautifully. If you didn't start with the delicious Cabecou de Poitou, it is a wonderful close to what will surely have been a memorable meal. Venez mes amis! Buvons un peu de Rosé!

    The apellation Côtes de Provence is the most widely known appellation of Provence. Its geographic area comprises 84 towns of the Var, Bouches-du-Rhone and Alpes-Maritimes (1 town) departments. Presenting a certain diversity of terrain, the entire area is subject to the Provencal mediterranean climate. The vineyards, which cover about 18,000 hectares, produce a majority of roses, drawn mainly from Grenache, Cinsaut, Carignan and Syrah. Halfway between the northern area of the appellation, the coolest lands, and the especially warm coastal area, the Maures plain, in the permian depression, the wine benefits from a mixed microclimate entirely conducive to the production of rose wines. Côtes de Provence wines are both smooth and powerful."
