Canadians are breaking free of the old Rose stereotypes of sweet icky White Zinfandel and realizing the lovely charms of dry, fresh Rose. Five years ago I couldn't sell a bottle of Rose in Calgary to save my life; today, even the toughest big red boys are enjoying the elegant drinkability of lovely Rose on a warm day by the barbeque. Manly men drink pink.
Domaine Montrose is located in the south of France, minutes from the Mediterranean. Not to be confused with Chateau Montrose of Bordeaux. Domaine Montrose is distinguished by the three lizard crest, originally granted to the domain by the king of France in 1701.
The tasting: Light pink with hints of copper on the eye. Delicate, lovely perfume. On the palate, very gluggable. Fresh and delicate. Not for the cellar. Drink. Now.
Music Pairing: Soundtrack to Breathless by Jean Luc Goddard
Book to read with: A Year In Provence, Peter Mayle
When to drink: With sun. On the patio. Or when you desperately want sun together with big bowl of fish stew.
