A few days ago, one of the parcels I received was making a dangling noise and I wondered what caused it.
Had I taken the time to read the shipping label, I would have realized it was wine.
What the relatively large box contained was 4 taste tubes with Rose Wines from Chateau de Brigue in Le Luc en Provence.
There were 2 samples each of Prestige (Cinsault 50%, Cabernet Sauvignon 30%, Syrah 10%, Grenache 10%)
and Signature (Grenache 50 %, Syrah 40%, Cinsault 10%) both from 2010 Vintage.
I am not too keen on Cabernet Sauvignon in Rose so that might explain why Signature gets my vote.
Winemaker suggests you pair Signature with Mediterranean fare or Asian dishes.
I might try it with a recipe from Big Book of Noodles (Kyle Books).
Maybe my palate is off right now as I am fighting a cold.
I will surely have another chance to taste them.
Check my previous review of Signature 2007, A Rose Wine that Sings (June 2010).
The taste tubes go by the name of WIT (wine in tube) and contain only 60 ml, a tease.
This baby tasting was a nice prelude to Hospice du Rhone 2011 starting April 28 (in Paso Robles), my first visit to the event.
