|You can guess what the wine of choice was for the remainder of the trip, and why not? It was great during the hot afternoons and warm evenings. Its ability to pair with a variety of cuisine made us return to the grocery store to load up day after day. Did I say it was more than affordable? When I returned home, I regaled my loved ones of the soulful, cultural adventure I just experienced. The only thing that didn’t resonate with them was the Rosé part. That was before I began working here at The Wine House. My friends and family are well aware of the beauty of these wines now. So as I sit here contemplating about summers past, I feel so lucky to have been exposed to such wonders and am proud of myself to have been so open to receiving gifts such as these while playing tourist in another country. No agenda, no checklists, no expectations. Just live there for a little while, and magic happens. As for summers present and future, I cannot imagine them bereft of Rosé. Let me tell you about my favorite one this year: The funny thing about déjà vu is that you never really know when one is going to happen.
Here we go, we have a bunch of Rosé in stock here, and I like them all. But there’s one I keep going back to. It’s the 2008 Grande Cassagne, again. There is something they do here. Maybe the 5% Mourvèdre gives it that special je ne sais quois. Aromatically, it hits you with a closely bound duo of fruit and mineral, yet there is a whisper of smokey, cured meat drifting in the background. On the palate it opens with vibrancy that keeps the fruit in check, the mineral hangs on, as does that phantom smokey thing and an herbal presence jumps on board as well. The finish is pure harmony. All in all, Carsten is now cooking in British Columbia, swears he’s on his way back to France after the season’s over, but it’s okay, I’ve still got my favorite Rosé to remind me of the south of France! A Santé!–Peter Zavialoff
