Gassier Sables d’Azur Rosé 2015
So for me, especially with the hot days we’ve been having, I am gravitating to rose. My wine pick today is from the Cotes de Provence, the largest appellation in Provence, of course known for rose. Almost with 90% of its production is pink and a bright pale pink, known to be fresh, a hint of spice and floral notes.
My choice is the Sables d’Azur Cotes de Provence 2015, rose, by Gassier, beautiful, salmon copper colour, fresh, crisp, dry, beautiful tones of fresh strawberry and peach, elegant, delicate, a blend of Cinsault, Grenache and syrah, lovely, delicious, all for $15.95 yum!
On this week’s radio show…A salute to the glorious grape and beyond, from the table, to the fortified spirit, to the jewel of Spain, Rioja
We’ll start with our salute to the glorious grape, but beyond the grape as a table wine rather the role it plays in a variety of spirits of which there are many. Examples such as Pisco from Peru, Cognac from Cognac, Grappa traditionally from Italy…or as a fortified wine like Port from Portugal and of one of the jewels of Spain, Sherry.
