Saint Andre de Figuieres, Cotes de Provence, 2008.
This is a serious rose people. And I mean like really good and complex and beautiful and elegant and simply divinely fantastic. I found this wine to be both creamy and crisp on the palate. Don't know why that is, but its not an austere kill-you-with-acid rose. Rather its slowly seductive. Gives a little cream and gives a little crisp.
You can't help but love the strawberry cream notes. Like love it for summertime people. And in case you hadn't noticed its still kinda summertime here. Until they put out that fire I'm celebrating summer. That could be next year and I'm fine with that.
Around $15, this is available at both Larchmont Wine and Spirits and Domaine LA.
