International Rosé Day June 22nd, 2018
Its definitely rosé season when one receives a delightful invitation to The Consul General of France’s home in Toronto for a Rosé Tasting Reception. We gladly accepted Mr. Marc Trouyet’s invitation as rosé is enjoying a worldwide revolution and International Rosé Day is just around the corner, June 22nd. It was a lovely opportunity to taste some renowned French wines that are typically not available here in our market. The good news is that these wines are coming here soon!
Consul General Marc Trouyet and Liz Palmer welcome guests as the rose tasting is about to begin.
Award-winning author and Wine Journalist, Liz Palmer was present to present the rose story and to guide us through a tasting of five different rosé wines. The wines were accompanied by an assortment of delicious freshly-made handcrafted hors d’oeuvres prepared by Chef Francoise Briet.
This blend of Grenache and Cinsault is beloved for its zippy personality, ripe red berry, raspberry and Provençal tones. It pairs beautifully with smoked salmon.
