Schoolbuses may be back on the road, but we’ve still got a little more warm weather to enjoy. And if you know us at all, you know that warm weather equals time for rosé! Diane tested our staff favorite rose‘s ability to go with almost anything by making some decadent burgers with bacon and sharp cheddar. Ch Les Valentine’s passed with flying colors!
She’s not the only one in a rose state of mind. Before Randy left for his annual vacation, he absconded with a case of Martinez Lacuetsa Rosato, probably the best value rose we’ve had all summer. This all-Grenache number is just as good on its own sitting outside as it is with food.
Lauren enjoyed a few days at the beach with family and friends, and says the Round Hill Chardonnay was delicious with an outdoor crab dinner.
Doug has been loving one of our classiest grower Champagnes, Chartogne-Taillet. When this very low-dosage bottling first arrived, it was delicious and impressive, but a little austere. Now it’s relaxed, while remaining crisp and bracing, perfect for an impromptu dinner of cheese and crusty bread.
So, what have you been drinking?
