New Rosé Wines from France

It is the season for Rosés from different parts of France. I discovered two wonderful Rosés that are worth sharing with you here in my fullybooked page.

Château La Canorgue Côtes du Lubéron Rosé 2012 comes from Rhone is produced with the most natural means available. This organic wine has a pale coral pink color and fresh berry scents.  The Lubéron Rosé is a blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache. Elegant and crisp is perfect for warm summer days as an aperitif or with fresh salads and fruit.

Domaine Sorin 2012 Terra Amata 2012 Rosé Wine is a superb wine from Provence's finest grapes. It is a blend of Grenache (40%), Cinsault (15%), Syrah (10%), Mourvèdre (15%), Carignan (10%), Rolle (5%) and Orgi (5%). A brilliant pale salmon color with copper highlights, Sorin's 2012 Rosé features aromas of dried sage, juniper, grapefruit and rhubarb. Pair with classic Provençal recipes such as ratatouille, grilled whole fish stuffed with fennel and herbs, summer squashes and light seafood pastas.
