drunkhousekeeping_domaineduvieuxWine Region: Cotes du Rhone, France

Wine Type:  Rosé

Price: $15-$18 (this wine was a wildly cheap $12 back in 2006, but it’s popularity has steadily been growing. We’re betting its due to the new interest in our favorite pink wine and the organic farming techniques that Domaine du Vieux Chene uses.)

Rating: 8 out of 10 stars

Notes: Strawberry, Dry, Clean, 100% Grenache

 

K: A dry fruity rosé. Not too tart but very clear.

C: Fruity but not sweet. Very clean.

K: Great summer wine, no real nose but super flavorful.

C: Very strong strawberry flavors but with a pleasant acidity.

K: Like biting into an unripe strawberry. Similar to the Mulderbosch South African rosé.

C: Decent balance on the acetic acid. Not too vinegary.

B: Reminds me of communion wine.

C: Hey, at least he didn’t say it reminds him of easter egg dye.
