Been invited to a barbecue on Sunday, it was suggested that I pick some beer on the way and decided to add French Orangeade and a bottle of Rosé Wine to the drink basket.
Since my last Rosé pick was from Provence and the Chinon was a Cynthia Hurley selection and I trust her good judgment I went with the Couly-Dutheil Chinon Rose 2008, all Cabernet Franc.
The people at Carlo Russo (I did not buy it there) sing its praise and state that "this Rosé with its nervy charm and Cabernet Franc essence will completely win you over. You will be passing up your favorite summer white for it".
Those attending the party must have agreed as the wine was gone in no time, they left me just enough to charm my taste buds.
Guess I have to get another bottle or two of this Couly-Dutheil Chinon Rose 2008 before it's gone from the shelves.
Should cost you around $14-$15
