You’re probably not drinking enough Beaujolais in general, but you’re probably definitely not drinking enough rosé of Gamay from Beaujolais.
I’ve loved the red wines from Chateau Thivin for years, but until now I’d never had their rosé, and I have been missing out!
Bottle: 4.5/5 – I love the frosted bottle and the classic label here.
Color: 4/5 – A very pretty, sort of cherry-toned pink, like the same hue as one of those maraschino cherries in fruit cocktail.
Chugability: 4.5/5 – Gamay is a grape that has a lot of fresh, tangy fruit flavors, and that really comes through even in rose form. Like a grownup version of a cherry Sour Patch Kid.
Price to Quality Ratio: 4.5/5 – This retails for $13-15, which is a great value for wine of this quality level.
Overall Score: 17.5/20. One of my favorites so far!
Goes With: A romantic picnic by a lake where you use an actual picnic basket and real napkins.
I tasted this with a vendor, but this wine is imported by Kermit Lynch, so it should be available in many parts of the US.
