Rose deliciousness.

I haven't had a glass of rose in so long, and when I drank this I couldn't understand why I don't drink it more often. 

Le Saint Andre, Vin de Pays du Var, 2008. 

Very clean, bright and refreshing. Cherry, strawberry, raspberry, every fresh red berry under the sky. 

When Jill from Domaine 547 gave this wine to me, she said, See, you can like something under $13. This is $12!!! Holy cow! $12?  

Look, you can't ask for much more than that, and as you can see we drained the bottle... didn't take a lot to convince me to have more than one glass.

This is the second-label rosé of Domaine Saint André de Figuière. Imagine a world in which there exists a second-label rosé.

Ah! It's a crazy world indeed! I think we had the first label at Simon's house this weekend. Have to check back at my photos.

Paul Young acolyte David Duman informs me that this is in fact the domaine's FOURTH-LABEL rosé! Pouring it btg @ El Prado now too.
