Yum! This wine is HUGE in Paris Right Now!
At the end of the summer it’s fun to find some lighthearted sips to help alleviate the heat. The sweet bubbly lady at Mr. Bill’s Wine Cellar, Roanoke, Virginia, told me that when you open a bottle of the Rosé with grapefruit ($12 range) you will think that you’ve just cut into a fresh ruby-red grapefruit. It’s easy to see why this is all the rage in Paris…a lovely light grapefruit flavor with a tee-tiny bit of sweetness. I added a bit of sparkling wine to it to add a bit of fizz…LOVE IT!
Tasting notes from “Winesearch”: Steely pink color. Citrusy, fresh aromas and flavors of ruby grapefruit and cherry with a silky, vibrant, off-dry light-to-medium body and a smooth, amusing, medium-length apple sauce finish with fine, fruit tannins and no oak. A nice tangy, grapefruit flavored wine.
