Everyone looks for that special bottle of wine for their holiday celebration. For Easter, you want something delicate and festive to support the changing season. These three rosés are perfect for the developing spring and wonderful matches for a roasted ham and other traditional Easter fare.
Gerard Bertrand Cote des Roses Rosé
Côte des Roses celebrates the Mediterranean lifestyle where the soils are highly varied with a warm, windy climate which helps the grapes to ripen while retaining all their fresher qualities, thanks to the altitude and the influence of the sea.
This French rosé displays a soft but brilliant pink with bluish tints, developing over time towards more orangey nuances. The bouquet releases aromas of summer fruits, cassis, and red currant. Floral notes of rose along with hints of grapefruit complete its welcome. On the palate the impression is fresh and full, with a great aromatic persistence and balance. The finish is fresh, offering notes of candy.
The bottle is original with its base in the shape of a rose, created by a young designer from the Ecole Boulle art school.
Comfortable and relaxed with a touch of glamor, Butternut Winery delivers an outgoing, accessibly elegant wine that is ideal for the company of friends. Their refreshing rosé begins with an aroma of sweet scents of watermelon, citrus, and floral elements. On the palate, an array of strawberry and grapefruit entwine to deliver a crisp, acidic finish.
Fleur de Mer Côtes de Provence Rosé
Provence is known around the world as the quintessential region for Rosé. Intensely aromatic, the elegant lavender and violet notes of Fleur de Mer evoke the purple-dotted hillsides and romantic seaside villages of Provence. Ripe fruit touches of watermelon, cherry and raspberry highlight the refreshing, medium-bodied palate, while hints of citrus, rose petal, and minerality add an appealing complexity and crisp freshness. On the long, soft finish, flavors of ripe peach and succulent melon blend with the fresh herbal and floral elements.
Fleur de Mer is a blend of 82% Grenache, 9% Cinsault, and 9% other select Provencal reds.
