You may look at this Wine Pick of the Week and wonder what I was thinking. Don’t I know that it’s fall? Shouldn’t I recommend a Pinot Noir, Zinfandel or Cabernet that is more respectful of the first frost of the season? Well, yes, but I didn’t want to overlook a favorite Summer wine.
This fruity and complex Rosé is known for its versatility and you can enjoy it by the glass or order a bottle for the table when you join us for dinner this week. You don’t want to miss out tasting this wine and adding it to your rotation of year-round favorites.
Set in the Rhone Valley of France, Chateau D’Aqueria has been owned and run by three generations of the Olivier family and you can taste the passion they have for their vines in each glass. If you ever have a chance to visit, it is said that their magnificent French gardens were designed by a disciple of André Lenotre, gardener to King Louis XIV.
If you are new to Rosé, Chateau D’Aqueria, Tavel Rosé ’15 is a perfect reason to start to your tasting adventures. Bring a friend and enjoy #RoséAnyday with us in Downtown Greensboro.
I look forward to seeing you soon and hearing your thoughts on this wine.
Chateau D’Aqueria offers these tasting notes:
Grenache Noir, Clairette, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Syrah,
Sandy clayey hillsides
6 months in stainless tank
12 à 14°C
Slightly lighter in color, distinctive aromatic expression redolent of
white fruit. Great fullness, fleshy and round with our signature lingering,
fresh finish, the expression of our greatest terroirs.
This vintage is comparable to the great 1995 and 2000 years.
