May is Rosé

May has arrived! If those 80-degree days last month were any indication of the summer that lies ahead, then we’ll need to be well stocked in rosé! It’s never too early to get into the rosé spirit.

Here is the pre-summer Top-10 Best Rosé List!

1) 2015 Domaine de Triennes Rosé Vin de Pays de Méditerranée ($13.99)

Always one of Leschi Market’s best sellers. “Pale pink. Red fruit and notes of citrus contribute to the aromatic complexity. It has the harmony and elegance that has earned worldwide appreciation of the rosés of Provence. Principally Cinsault, blended with Grenache, Syrah and Merlot.” –Winery notes.

2) 2015 Tranche Cellars Pink Pape Blackrock Vineyard Yakima ($14.99)

One of the absolute best domestic pinks around! Consists of 31% Cinsault and 23% Counoise and 46% Grenache. “Pale salmon in color with light pink hue. Delicate aromas of rose petal, honeydew melon and white peach, with lifted notes of sweet pink grapefruit and lemon peel. The wine is fresh and lively with bright stone fruit and mountain berry flavors complemented by wet river rock minerality. Driving acidity and citrus qualities provide focus and direction, drawing out the palate to a mouthwatering finish. 637 cases made.” –Winemaker notes.

3) 2015 Gerard Bertrand Gris Blanc Rosé Pays d’Oc Languedoc Roussillon ($13.99)
