LCBO Text Status
This one is not to be missed; Beaujolais rosé is an uncommon sight EVERYWHERE, including in Beaujolais. Though production of this bright, refreshing style has increased in recent years, it's still exceptionally rare. Less rosé wine is made in Beaujolais than white wine (and they make very little white wine), but their rosés are more than mere curiosities. Expect lifted red fruit, a touch of pepper spice and a tangy, refreshing acidity from this wine, which is crafted from Gamay. An ideal sipper to accompany a casual backyard lunch. Price $ 16.95
