Wine of the Week: Mourgues du Grès Les Galets Rosé 2012

April 10th, 2013

sm Galet Rose 2012This was the first dry rosé from France that inspired my love of French Rosés.  The Mourgues du Gres Les Galets Rosé 2012 is named after the terroir, deeply blanketed with Galet Roulés, large flat stones that cover the soil, keeping moisture in and adding a delightful minerality to the wine.  The grape varietals are a mix of Syrah and Granache.  It has a deep ruby color and offers intense fruit flavors of strawberry, cherry, and spicy notes.  Perfect for a warm summer day and pairs wonderfully with herb crusted fish and steamed vegetables, or anything off the BBQ.
