We are almost at 30 beautiful days of rosé! Today I have a delicious, tangy rosé of Grolleau, a peppery red variety from France’s Loire Valley.
Bottle: 4/5 – I’m a sucker for the old-fashioned look of the labels on wines from Kermit Lynch Imports.
Color: 4.5/5 – Electric magenta, almost glows in the glass!
Chugability: 4/5 – I loved this, but it’s not for everyone. Tart and peppery, like a rhubarb-based dessert you’d get at a fancy restaurant that has peppercorns and all kinds of weird herbs in it.
Price to Quality Ratio: 3.5/5 – At about $17
Overall Score: 16/20. Fun and different!
Goes With: A Tinder date at a restaurant you had to take a way-too-long Lyft ride to. You’re hungry after because the food was all ‘small plates’ that didn’t include much actual food, but at least the rosé was good.
