This trend might just last a few rosé seasons. And I’m sure it would sell just as well if it was filled with knockoff Mateus. Fortunately it is not. The blend is 35% Gamay, 33% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 12% Grolleau, 5% Pineau d’Aunis, 2% Pinot Gris. Those varietals indicate it’s probably not from Provence.

In fact it’s sourced from the Loire Valley (Muscadet and Touraine). Although it’s crisp and dry, there’s a noticeably contrast to Provençal rosés, which I find usually lean toward a citrus and peach, tart and tangy, high acidity profile. By comparison, the Forty Ounce has a more mellow profile. Watermelon, orange peel, cherry, and crushed rock. If all the other rosés are Hampton Water, this is Hipster Water, and will certainly provide enormous appeal to fans of La Croix.

When it’s insanely hot outside...reach for a cold 40oz!! Great blend actually- tasty and refreshing. I’d drink it again! Don’t knock it until you try it!

i guess it would be obvious for me to mention that this is a porch pounder, but wrapped in the finest brown bag~it holds up ...med-lite body with red berry nose and suprisingly long finish
