I’m starting to think that Gamay is a really underrated variety to use for rosé. For Day 30 I’ve got a rosé of Gamay from Pierre Guindon, a producer in France’s Loire Valley.
Bottle: 3.5/5 – Not bad, but I don’t love the faux-aged label.
Color: 4/5 – A pretty fluorescent coral.
Chugability: 4/5 – Like watermelon Jolly Ranchers dropped in seltzer. Zingy deliciousness.
Price to Quality Ratio: 4/5 – $13 is a great value for this!
Overall Score: 15.5/20. Fun and different!
Goes With: Lunch at a great French bistro with your favorite aunt – pate, cornichons, and bawdy advice about men.
