Rosé wine has soared in popularity over the past few years. While most people associate a crisp, dry rosé with the hot temperatures of summer (or the past week), a quality rosé deserves to be appreciated year-round due to their versatility when it comes to food pairings. They are light and refreshing enough to complement fresh summer fare but when placed alongside hearty fall-inspired dishes they really shine.
When it comes to that big meal at the end of November, you’ll be hard pressed to find a style that can hold up to nearly everything on the table as well as a dry rosé. Since you’re probably planning on hosting or visiting a large gathering, it’s always a smart decision to plan ahead and stock up before most rosés are gone for the season.
The Domaine le Clos des Lumieres Rosé 2016 is the perfect wine for that, or really, any occasion. The nose reveals bright strawberry aromas and the palate adds cherry, grapefruit, a little spice with beautiful minerality on the finish. It’s always a great deal and today it’s even better!
