How is it possible it's July already?? 'Tis the season for rose! I enjoyed a Cotes de Provence rose by Breezette while out at the beach this weekend. Simple, not something that needs to be over thought, the most important part of picking a rose for me is making sure that it is completely dry. I tend to hedge my bets by picking bottles lighter in color. A fun name like "Breezette" doesn't hurt either!
This rose was a blend of 80% Cinsault and 20% Mourvedre grapes, very light in style, the nose was full of fresh stone fruit. Peaches and apricot, carried through in the palette, balanced by crisp acidity and a slight minerality, which made it perfect for enjoying seaside!
