It is Sunday evening and I have opened the 2019 Domaine de Fontsainte Corbières Gris de Gris Rosè. This wine is a blend of 90% Grenache Gris, 5% Carignan and 5% Mourvèdre.

On the nose there is strawberry, melon, cherry, citrus zest, orange blossom, honey and minerality.

The palate has notes of strawberry, cherry, tart peach, citrus notes, a good saline and minerality.

This wine is light to medium bodied that is very well balanced with medium + acidity that leads to a long fresh crisp finish. A beautiful rosè from the Languedoc. I hope everyone's weekend was a good one? Please stay healthy and continue being safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

It’s rosé, how high could one possibly rate it? 90% Grenache Gris. Refined. Refreshing. Escapist.

Wonderful crisp refreshing rose with a touch of creaminess. Another go to rose.

This wine is the perfect intersection of quality and price. 15 bucks. Bracing acidity, bright fruit, salinity. I’ve had dozens of bottles of this wine over the years, and it never disappoints.

Balanced rose with bright acidity and the right tones of minerality and tart fruit flavors

Flavors of red fruit and minerality. Medium body and refreshing. On the sweeter side. Oily finish. Pairs well with spicy dishes.

Picked up this rose on recommendation. Pulled it out on this hot afternoon and it was really nice with charcuterie and a tomato sandwich. Great summer dinner!

Great qpr here. Always solid and easy on the wallet. What more could you ask for at the price?
