September Wine Pick: Chateau de L'Aumerade Côtes de Provence Cuvée Marie Christine Cru Classe Rosé 2017


Oh my goodness, September is going to be a fun month! There will be wines from France, a few Proseccos from Italy, and two American Vermouths. Alright, wines from France may be an understatement because there's a TON of those, and every Tuesday in September will feature a Rosé from Provence, France. Let's call it "Rosé Tuesday".

I'm finishing up my three-part Sake series for this month's long-read article, and I'll even be reviewing a canned sake. CANNED SAKE? WTF? Garnacha Day is on the 20th so there's that. And, as always, additions will be made as the month moves along. I might even review your face, so stop looking at me like that.

Anyways... we're living on borrowed time here for summer weather, so my wine pick of the month is this refreshing Syrah / Grenache Rosé while the sunny days last!

The color of the wine is salmon pink and it has a medium body, a rich mouthfeel, and a mellow acidity. For flavors and aromas there's white flowers, ripe peaches, juicy watermelon, strawberry gummies, lime, and it's just an overall joy to drink. Even though it's a dry rosé with a 13% ABV, it finishes with a slathery coating of thick juicy fruit all over your mouth. Crisp? Nope. Delicious? Yep.

Enjoy the rest of your summer, my Northern Hemisphere friends, by drinking good rosé and keep yourselves refreshed!
