It is definitely Rosé season! My inbox is full of new release emails from wineries and every wine shop is stocked full of 2014 Rosés. One of the first bottles I reached for this year is 2014 Moulin de Gassac “Guilhem” Vin de Pays d’Hérault Rosé. Each and every year, this fairly priced Rosé exceeds my expectations. This year, the wine is a blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah from the Languedoc region of France. With a price of $9-10 a bottle, it is hard to pass up!
The nose of this salmon-colored Rosé offers delicate aromas of strawberries. The soft aromas lead to a surprisingly bold red berry packed punch. The berries are surrounded with minerals and bright acidity. Such a great value and surely a wine I will be sipping throughout the spring and summer! (12% alcohol, $10)
