Rosé Magnum!

Another reason to love summer! Entering my rosé phase!  The June 2016 issue of Food and Wine shares this tidbit of wine advice: The latest Côte d’Azur trend…equipping your mega-yacht with a special refrigerator designed specifically to hold three-liter (or larger) bottles of rosé.

The Côte d’Azur, often known in English as the French Riviera, is the Mediterranean coastline of the southeast corner of France, also including the sovereign state of Monaco.

Fortunately rosé can be a less expensive wine choice, so you can keep a copious supply and drink it at your leisure while saving $ to purchase that fancy dancy refrigerator for your mega-yacht.

Rose magnum(Magnum on left = 2 bottles)

Chateau Léoube Rosé de Léoube 2015 Côtes de Provence, France,a blend of  grenache, cinsault, syrah and mourvèdre made from grapes grown at the Ch Léoube vineyards.  Very pale pink.  Tasting notes from the Chateau Léoube website: The nose fresh: a blend of exotic fruits with light spice flavours. The palate is supple and elegant without being in breach of liveliness. Under his pale color, the Château Léoube rosé unveils a full complex wine.

    Becky: I have recently had occasion to be at two local wineries both who were debuting their 2016 Roses and they were each delightful. I am no wine expert but if you come across Roses from Hamlet Vineyards in Bassett, Va., or Veritas Vineyard in Winery in Afton, give them a go!
