Pink of the Week-FRANCE: Chateau Guiot Rosé

Today the pendulum swings. From lean & mineral-laden to chunky & juicy. The polar opposite from last week's Pink, this in-your-face rosé puts your senses on high volume. We are back to one of my favorite areas for delicious, easy-drinking pinks, the Costières de Nîmes. Screen Shot 2013-05-30 at 9.20.01 AM

Chateau Guiot Rosé: Grenache/Syrah. Bursting out of the bottle with a bright, dark pink color w reddish tones, and a big, full nose, with jammy, strawberry preserves, raspberry compote, vanilla & cranberry. This is your brunch rosé! Pair with pancakes, stuffed french toast, or at night, with a lovely strawberry-rhubarb pie.
