Remy Pannier Rosé D'anjou 2013, Loire Valley, France: So pretty! Bone-dry, delicate rose with aromas of tine wild field strawberries, the kind that melt deliciously in your hand from the warmth of your palm. Yes this wine is very dry. Perfect aperitif served slightly chilled or for a treat, pair it with smoked salmon. Drink: 2013-2015. 12641 10% D 750 mL  $13.95 Score: 87/100. August 3, 2014 Best Value Rosé Wine.
