Fontsainte’s Gris de Gris has been a consistent must-buy for decades. Displaying vibrant blood orange and redcurrant scents and flavors, this gorgeous Rosé has the concentration to handle strongly seasoned foods but its liveliness makes it wonderfully easy to drink all by itself.

This is Rosé. Direct press, lean, high-acid, weightless on the palate with delicate fruit and taut with minerality. Can handle any item in one of my backyard BBQ nights. “Like drinking clouds.”

My new favorite rosé. Bright, refreshing, crisp. Lots of minerality, dashes of red fruits. 🍓

If this is any indication of the 2017 vintage for rose, we’re off to a good start. Bright, juicy, strawberry and cherry Fresh, clean lingering finish. Great value.

A perennial bargain, Domaine de Fontsainte does not disappoint in 2017. Vibrant, pure berry flavors with a pillowy softness on the edge. Buy by the case for your next garden party.

Dry, round, some must on the back end, almost like wet cedar/ash.

It's 90 degrees here and this rose hits the spot! Refreshing and raspberry notes that just work!

Lively fruit. Strawberry and cherry. A nice thirst quencher.

Some nights old and familiar wins, esp. in context of salad wine.
