What I'm Drinking: Rose'

Domaine de Fontsainte “Gris de Gris” Rose' been my favorite rose’ for over 10 years.  

Seriously.  

It is the perfect balance of what a rose' should be. The color is close to salmon and holds gobs of strawberry fruit on the palate while being absolutely dry and refreshing!  Made in the saignee’ (in French means bloodletting) method which involves allowing the wine have a short maceration on the skins before bleeding off then going into fermentation.

Serve with light salads or with pretty much anything on the grill.  This wine is meant to be friendly to almost any situation...whether you are eating or not!  

On these extra warm days coming up, remember to serve the rose' cold.  I recommend placing in the fridge an hour before serving or submerge in a bucket of ice water (not just ice) for 20-30 minutes. This is also nice to have when you are sitting outside and want to keep the wine cold!
