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.

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.”

Spectacular French rosé. Rose gold colour, austere nose, subtle hints of grapefruit, strawberry, stone fruit. A lot of depth in the palate with medium acidity and a creaminess that further expresses stone fruit, strawberry and a mineral finish.

Aromatic, lively. Great partner to my afternoon prosciutto and brie salad.

Citrus nose. More body than most rosés. Nice acidity, somewhat dry. Tart with grapefruit, peaches, and apricots on palate. Terrific wine for the price!
