Here's a batch of Rosés I would like to try first, all 2009 Vintage.
First Domaine de la Noblaie Chinon so it has to be Cabernet Franc and it will have character.
Second Saintsbury Vincent de Gris, a Carneros Vin de Gris of Pinot Noir, is it due to the Van Gogh connection? Maybe. Some consider Vin de Gris a different animal than a Rosé
Third, an under the radar pick, a Rosé in the Gris shade from Morocco, a Gerrouane Gris from Les Trois Domaines, 100% Cinsault, all the way from Meknes.
I would sip a glass first then continue drinking these 3 with a spicy food sampler.
Now I am thirsty.
