I wanted to find a wine that would fit the mold of the Mother’s Day holiday. Sunday will be fun. And we will also celebrate the warm weather, happiness, joy, love, peace, and anything else that makes you feel good. I believe my choice fits both the holiday and the season.
A Rose was suggested and a Rose is what I got! I didn’t have to look too far. I found a stunning bottle. Now the look shape is unique and wonderful. But the salmon color inside is a beauty. Thanks to the great folks at Wine World in Abingdon, MD for their help.
They had a holiday section set up with various Roses’, at the front of the store. Per a team members suggestion, not just for the shape, but for the taste, the Aime Roquesante Cotes De Provence 2014 was the immediate choice. I am not a huge fan nor a detractor of the the sweeter wines. But this blog is going to help me appreciate white, lighter, and fruitier wines as the weather breaks.
And this bottle is fun. It tasted fuller than I thought it would be.
How pretty is that?
I’m assuming the fullness comes from the Syrah. If I hadn’t looked it up, I wouldn’t have known it was made of the aforementioned Syrah, Grenache, and Cinsault. The latter one is new to me. I tasted a lot of citrus flavors and maybe some hints of flowers.
I thought for sure they wouldn’t have a website. How silly and presumptuous of me. It’s in French and I find that fun. I don’t see anywhere to translate, but I prefer it that way. Maybe it’s so beautiful, I don’t need to know what they’re saying. The birds chirping is all I needed.
I don’t think you can go wrong in the food department. Whatever your holiday meal is, this wine will go with it. Whether’s it’s meat, vegetables, cheese, or appetizers. I believe this bottle is a great complement to any of those and many other dishes.
I’ve seen prices ranging from $9.99 to $14.99 in various stores. As always, the cheaper the better. But this is a bottle worthy of the higher price point.
I wish you all a great week! And a Happy Mother’s Day to you and yours!
