Costières de Nimes, Rhone, France
Saveurs du Temps Rosé is a delicious dry rosé from Vignerons Propriétés Associés in the southern Rhone. The Costières de Nimes AOP is for wines that are produced in an area between the ancient city of Nîmes and the western Rhône delta, in the French department of the Gard. Formerly part of the Languedoc region of France, as the wines more resemble those of the Rhône valley in character than of the Languedoc, it is now part of the Rhone wine area. This is a great wine to usher in the spring, combining the rich flavors of a red wine with the refreshing qualities of a white. It's a true wine gem!
Saveurs du Temps Rosé is a blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah. This dry rosé offers an intense bouquet of raspberries, blackberries and red fruits. It is beautifully crisp and flavorful on the palate with medium body and notes of red berries, spice and no oak. The finish is long and refreshing.
Enjoy Saveurs du Temps Rosé now and over the next 2-3 years as the perfect patio aperitif wine. It pairs nicely with salade Nicoise, roast chicken, grilled shrimp and summer salads.
