Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone Rose 2019
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: "Light, bright orange-pink. Vibrant red currant, raspberry and orange zest aromas show very good clarity and take on a spicy white pepper quality with air. In a lithe, precise style, offering tangy red berry and blood orange flavors and a subtle floral nuance. Finishes taut and dry, with clinging spiciness and a touch of succulent herbs. This a pretty grown-up wine for the category. All stainless steel. Drinking window: 2021-2023." Jun 2021
Wine Enthusiast: "Vibrant raspberry and cassis flavors abound in this thirst-quenching, dry rosé composed of 70% Grenache, 20% Cinsault and 10% Syrah. It's fresh and pure in fruit but intensely mineral too, finishing on a long, exhilarating spray of cut stone and salt." July 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."
