• The bottle on the following Rosé is a work of art; the bottom is carved to resemble a rose. Surely you’ll make points for such thoughtfulness on February 14th. As well, the glass stopper can be washed and re-used for any bottle that was opened and not finished then stored in the frig to keep fresh for two or three days.

Gérard Bertrand ‘Côte des Roses’ Rosé 2014

AOP Languedoc $18.95 (373985) 13.0% alcohol

From the sunny south of France, this delicious Rosé sports a lovely blend of Grenache/Cinsault/Grenache fruit. Strawberry, floral and spice aromas open the door to palate-bathing flavours of red berry fruit, spice box and wisps of pink grapefruit on the clean refreshing aftertaste. It’s a delightful sipper and pairs perfectly with pan-seared salmon or charcuterie. (Vic Harradine)
