Looking for the perfect pink wine for Valentine’s Day?
Some may think Valentine’s Day is a little syrupy sweet, but this gorgeous dry rose is anything but that.
The Prieuré de Montézargues Tavel Rosé is crisp and structured, maximizing the 8 different grape varieties of Grenaches (red & white), Cinsault, Clairette, Syrah, Mourvédre, Carignan, Bourboulenc in the mix. (That’s a lot of grapes!)
I say it’s crisp, but it still has a luscious mouthfeel as this wine is definitely more fuller bodied than most Rosés. I love the combination of strawberry and citrus flavors. After my first sip a few weeks ago, I knew it was the perfect winter Rosé to share with you.
At about $23 it’s a splurge wine for most— but isn’t that what Valentine’s Day is all about?
For those of you in grocery store wine states, you might have to make an extra trip to the wine shop for this one. But, in my opinion anyway, it will be worth it.
Pair it with fish, chicken or yes, even steak. Its fuller body and complex flavor can take it.
Cheers and Happy Valentine’s Day, friends.
