A Best Buy
Note that GASSIER does not appear on the bottle - only SABLES D'AZUR ROSÉ. This wine's distinctive curvy bottle is hard to miss on our shelves, but it's the floral, fruity wine within that has made it a perennial summer fave among Vintages customers. This has all the attributes you want in a barbecue wine - red fruit, bright food-friendly acidity, and enough structure and presence to pair with pretty much anything off the grill, from pork ribs to salmon to grilled chicken. Price $ 17.95
Bottle Size 750 mL
Tasting Date vintages release - June 22, 2019
