When thinking of warm weather, I immediately think Rose’. The cool refreshing quality of the wine makes it perfect for an afternoon on the porch or in the park. Rose’ comes in dry to sweet versions, making it easy to find one that is inline with your palate.
Henri Bourgeois Rose’ de Pinot Noir 2011 is a dry, clean and fresh version of Rose’. With a smell of strawberry on the nose you are sure that it will be sweet, but with one sip you can feel the clean, crisp quality that refreshes your palate.
