La Ferme de Gicon Côtes du Rhone Rosé 2017
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
This delightful dry Rosé is from the Côtes-du-Rhône in the south of France. We tasted and loved this 2017 vintage made of mostly Grenache. Look for a wonderful floral core with a dry style and raspberry, plum and wild strawberry notes. It is more complex than most Rosé wines in a similar pricepoint. Loaded with personality and character, serve at BBQ’s with grilled meats, or with spicy pulled pork, or with fun appetizers like salsa and chips, cheeses and olives, and summer salads.

Chateau Miraval Côtes de Provence Rosé 2017Miraval is one of the hottest dry Rosé wines on the market and is made by the talented, quality-driven Marc Perrin. The Perrin family owns the illustrious Beaucastel estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and is considered one of the greatest wine estates in the world. Perrin converted the ancient Miraval vineyard to organic farming when he was hired by the Pitt-Jolie family. The estate is located in the Correns village of the Côtes de Provence region and Perrin blends classic, local grapes including Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah and Rolle to make this tasty, juicy, dry and stylish offering. We first tasted Miraval dry Rosé in the south of France and then once it arrived stateside three summers ago, we were anxious to bring it in. We positively loved it with tuna, salmon and yellowtail sushi all summer long. Serve with all types of Asian fare, salmon, shrimp, grilled meats and vegetables, fine cheeses, olives and more…the 2012 was a Top 100 Wine of the Year in 2013.
Chateau d'Esclans Whispering Angel 2017This dry Rose from Provence is made by Sacha Lichine, son of Alexis Lichine from Chateau Prieure Lichine of Bordeaux. He worked at this family's former property during the summers of his youth and fell in love with wine. We found pink grapefruit, mint, roses and spices in a fresh, zippy, easy-going style in this offering. The color is a lovely pale salmon and the wine is made of mostly Grenache, with small percentages of Cinsault and a white grape::Rolle (aka Vermentino)n and Rolle. Whispering Angel was a great wine and food match with crabmeat and shrimp 'skinny' rolls followed by pan seared flounder sauteed in capers and lemon juice along with bok choy in fresh ginger and lemon olive oil. Whispering Angel is dry and easy-to-drink. We first discovered Whispering Angel years ago in Miami at the Fontainebleu where they were serving it poolside by-the-glass. This was long before the Whispering Angel - frenzy of popularity! We are so happy that people love dry Rose!!!
Hippolyte Reverdy Sancerre Rose 2017Hippolyte Reverdy’s family has been making wine in the village of Verdigny, a commune of Sancerre in the eastern Loire, for many generations—perhaps as far back as 1600. Traditional in nature, the farm was planted to multiple crops, and the Reverdys raised goats and made small quantities of wine from their own vines for local consumption. It was not until the end of World War II that Hippolyte began increasing his Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir production, selling it to accommodate increasing demands from Paris. Hippolyte and his three sons began bottling small quantities under their own label, although the lion’s share of the grapes was still being sold off to the local cave coopérative . Michel joined his father and brothers in 1971, shortly after finishing high school. Kermit Lynch began working with the domaine for the first time in 1983. Today, Michel farms fourteen hectares of vineyards on his own. Michel is a true farmer, working seven days a week, and wanting nothing more and nothing less. This Sancerre Rose is made of 100% Pinot Noir from vines averaging 30 years in age, planted in soils composed of siliceous clay and gravelly limestone. The vineyards are farmed with sustainable methods, and the wine is made in extremely small quantities.
Domaines Ott By.Ott Côtes de Provence Rosé 2017Domaine Ott is the most famous producer of Dry Rosé in the world and located in southern France in Provence, producing quintessential Dry Rosé. Marcel Ott, an agricultural engineer with a pioneer spirit, set out to create a wine estate in 1896 and this is considered by many to be the best Dry Rosé in the world. Made from handpicked Cabernet, Grenache and Cinsault grapes, the wine is ultimately aged in oak for 8 months giving it more body and dry extract. Chateau de Selle was acquired in 1912. It is situated on the plateaux of the Var, not far from Le Luc, in the heart of Côtes de Provence country encompassing 110 hectares, including 48 devoted to wine production. The Château was the former dwelling of the Counts of Provence and is a superb 18th-c. country house. The surrounding estate was entirely carved into the rocky land by Marcel Ott, his children and grandchildren. By.Ott is a new wine from Domaines Ott made in the Chateau de Selle cellar. The grapes are hand picked, followed by strict and selective sorting followed by an extremely delicate pressing of whole bunches with a super short maceration to produce the beautiful light color. Slow fermentation then takes place in thermo-regulated vats. A blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah, this wine is a lovely way to sample the great Ott* tradition in an accessible, friendly and elegant wine. Pale and pretty in crystal clear pink with orange undertones the nose is delicate and fruity with notes of white peach and apricot mixed with passion fruit and mango. The taste is full, fresh and crisp with echoes of the fruity aroma amplified by citrus zest and sweet spices like cinnamon and cardamom.
Diving Into Hampton Water Rose 2017Town & Country reports: 'Jon Bon Jovi will always be loyal to his New Jersey roots, but the 55-year-old singer also happens to have a soft spot for the Hamptons—so much so, that he decided to launch a rosé brand inspired by summers spent on the East End. With the help of his 23-year-old son Jesse (who came up with the name and concept) and famed French winemaker Gerard Bertrand, Bon Jovi officially launched "Diving Into Hampton Water" with a soiree in February 2018 at the Versace Mansion during the South Beach Food and Wine Festival in Miami.' Hand-picked by the finest wine makers the South of France has to offer, Hampton Water Wine is made up of a classic blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvèdre grapes. Graceful, elegant, and adventurous, they are calling her Pink, since this girl sure knows how to get the party started.,..when Pink’s around the fun is never far behind. But be warned when you’re with this girl you never know when day might turn to night…. and night into day. Rosé wine has a staple in the Bongiovi household for many years. ' We've always had a bit of an infatuation with it,' Jesse Bongiovi, the 23-year-old-son of rock icon Jon Bon Jovi, tells CNBC Make It. 'Whenever we'd go out to the Hamptons, we'd always bring cases and cases of the stuff. We like to think we were drinking it before it was cool.' About two years ago, the father-son duo were out on the porch enjoying a bottle with Jesse's college roommate, Ali Thomas. 'My dad had always referred to rosé as 'pink juice,' Bongiovi recalls. But that night, 'we said, 'no, no, no. We call it Hampton Water now.' We all kind of laughed about it and he was like, 'Aw man, that would be a funny name for a rosé.'
