I drink Rosé year round but it is hard not to pop open a bottle even more frequently as the temperature rises. There are so many great bottles of Rosé to choose from however there is one I return to year after year when I am looking for the most bang for my buck…Moulin de Gassac Guilhem Rosé. The wine hails from the Languedoc region of France and is a blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Carignan. The wine is aged in stainless steel and retails for somewhere in the neighborhood of $11 (a steal!).
Moulin de Gassac Guilhem Rosé is fresh and fruity. There are tastes of strawberries and red raspberries with hints of minerality. There is also plenty of acidity and a crisp, refreshing finish. This is type the wine I want to enjoy on a Tuesday evening in Sonoma Square or on a warm Saturday afternoon at the coast. Buy this wine by the case if you can find it because you will want some to sip all summer! (12% alcohol)
