Domaine Carrel Eugene et Fils Rose Savoie, France 2019Regular price $13.00
The Savoie region, running along the western foothills of the French Alps, is well known for it’s crisp, clean wines, and this rosé is no exception. Mostly Gamay, with a touch of Mondeuse, the mouthfeel is really the star of the show here.
This little Alpine sipper brings zippy bright red-fruited acid out first, and then a lovely silky minerality on the finish. Perfect for picnics, and an excellent converter of non-believers (for anyone who isn’t on the rosé train yet).
Food Ideas: Spicy summer greens with strawberries and walnuts, smoked trout dip, grilled sausages, swinging feet off boat docks
