$17.99/btl or $13.99/btl on 6+
“WINE SPECTATOR” 90 Points – SMART BUY
The cover of “Wine Spectator” (June 30th, 2018) says it all: “ROSÉ – Delicious and refreshing, pink wines are more popular and divers, then ever…” and we couldn’t agree more! Rule of thumb with “Wine Spectator,” when you receive the actual printed copy in the mail, it may be too late to purchase the wine! Most retailers, restaurateurs or avid wine collectors, subscribe to “Wine Spectator” INsider which is a weekly e-newsletter giving scores/reviews to wines in advance of the print issue being released. A good thing if you stay on top of it, a bad thing if you get behind. Luckily, in this case we still were able to get the goods and have 120 bottle for sale now!
The cover shot consisted of five different Rosés from all over the world, but the one that caught my eye was the 2017 Gerard Bertrand “Cote des Roses” from the Languedoc region of France. Languedoc is located in the southeastern corner of France, mostly bordering Spain and the Mediterranean Sea. The TOP 4 (of 20 rated) Rosés from Languedoc all come from the same producer…Gerard Bertrand. This 2017 pale-salmon, dry Rosé of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault came in at 90 POINTS and for $13.99/bottle on 6+ is an absolute steal!
ROSÉ has made a huge push over the past decade to sink its teeth into the American market once blinded by all Rosés being compared to a sweet blush or white zin. These wines are delicate and balanced, made with the same TLC you would expect in a cult Pinot Noir or Cabernet Sauvignon. Gerard Bertrand is one of the best producers in the world and for $13.99/bottle…trust us…click the BUY NOW button you’ll see why!
“Wine Spectator” 90 Points & SMART BUY: “Clean and fresh, with a delicate, balanced profile of white raspberry, cherry and lemon zest supported by lightly tangy acidity. Hints of mineral and herb show on the finish. A Provence-style rosé.”
