The perfect Tuesday night wine isn’t expensive, it has to go with a quick easy meal, or leftovers, and it has to taste amazing, because it’s Tuesday night and you shouldn’t compromise…
Chateau Puech-Haut Prestige Rosé , Languedoc, France
Dry Rosés are among the most popular wines available today. They are perfect summer wines to enjoy with grilled vegetables, grilled salmon, chicken dishes or just on their own. Rosé has been a spring and summer specialty in France for a very long time, many of them coming from the Languedoc and Provence regions in Southern France. The Languedoc region is home to some of the world’s finest examples of rosé, typically made using the grenache, carignan, cinsault or mourvedre grape varieties. One of my favorite examples of rosé from Languedoc is the Chateau Puech-Haut Prestige Rosé. It’s light in color, but has a lot of red fruit and floral notes and some spice on the finish. This wine comes from a beautiful winery near Montpellier in southern France near the Mediterranean. It’s an old estate that has recently been modified and is gaining international attention. Chill this wine to about 45 degrees and you’ll enjoy the glass stopper as an alternative to a screw cap. Cheers!
