Rosé wines are here!
After a snowy April, May is now here and as temperatures rise, what is better than enjoying a delicious Rosé on the patio. From Provence, Languedoc or the Loire valley there is a Rosé for every taste and occasion. Full fruit flavors but dry and crisp, Rosés are delicious with fish and grilled dishes, perfect with spicy food.
Le Rosé des Acanthes
From just outside of the prestigious rosé appellation of Tavel in Gard. A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Carignan and 20% Cinsault planted on limestone and clay soils. Full flavored fruit profile of strawberry and dried raspberry, with accents of fresh thyme and sage that linger on the finish.
From the Languedoc region, 100% Syrah. The vineyard has won the gold medal at the Paris Concours. Bursting with ripe red berries.
From Florensac in the heart of the Provence region, a delicious blend of Cinsault and Grenache grown on sandy alluvions. A beautiful soft rose color with salmon highlights hint at the aromas of ripe fruit – strawberries, currants, and peaches. On tasting, all elements combine harmoniously to exhibit a fresh and bright berry flavors with a touch of bitter almond.
From Saint André de Figuière, between Toulon and St-Tropez, the vines grow on the hillsides above the Mediterranean. A blend of old vines, 25% Grenache, 15% Cinsault and 30% Cabernet. Wonderful salmon color, aromas of melon and red berries on the nose, grapefruit and apricot upon tasting. Magali Couvignou-Combard, the wine maker, was recently at B town to talk about her wines. This could be B town’s favorite for the summer.

A super classic rosé from the hillsides of Aix-en-Provence, Bieler is a power house in the region. Great quality years after years, a nice blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 20% Cabernet. Crisp with melon and wild-strawberry aromas. A long time favorite.
Le Fruit Defendu
From the Languedoc, a very nice 90% old vine Cinsault, 10% Syrah rosé. The color is darker, notes of strawberry, melon and apricots.
Chateau Sainte Eulalie
From the hillsides of Languedoc, a blend of 40% Cinsault, 50% Syrah and 10% Carignan/Grenache. In this particular location, the vines are planted at higher altitude and face south, the soil is mostly clay and limestone. Fruity on the nose and mouth, liquorice.

Spirit Hound Distillers Gin and Coffee Liquor
Spirit Hounds is a new distillery located east of Lyons and is producing small batches of gin, whiskey and vodka. Master distiller Craig Engelhorn pushed the notion of handcrafted spirits by building himself the copper pot still used at the distillery. Spirit Hounds gin is prepared using fresh botanicals including juniper berries freshly picked from trees on company-owned property near the St. Vrain river in Lyons. Rather than directly infusing the botanicals in the still, the flavors are extracted by the alcohol vapors during the distillation making the floral notes more intense. Spirit Hounds also features a delicious coffee liquor, which has been made locally for over 20 years but only available for a lucky few. Richardo’s Coffee liquor is now available for all with its intense coffee and creamy vanilla flavors. This one is truly delicious.
