Wine of the Day

2012BouvierRose2012 Regis Bouvier, Marsannay Rose, Burgundy France.
This pretty and fresh rose of Pinot Noir is a nice Burgundy treat from Bouvier’s Marsannay grapes and makes for a lovely summer wine. Kermit Lynch’s value Burgundy house Regis Bouvier, crafts some fine examples of well made and easy to love wines, and while never great, they are very fun and honest wines, I especially like this delightful Marsannay rose with it’s crisp refreshing nature and pure Pinot fruit. The nose is bright with red citrus, watermelon, sour cherry and tart plum notes all coming through on the zesty and round palate. Super easy and pleasing, perfect for picnics, and warm afternoons. Hints of mineral and spice come through on the finish and jet begs you to take another sip. Drink now through the summer, I plan too, very nice.
