18 Jul For Wine Thursday!, we have a recommendation that promises to keep you “Fraiche Comme Le Rose”
It’s Wine Thursday!
our weekly good-wine-
just in time for your weekend.
Whether you’re going to spend the weekend
rubbing elbows with the crowd on the Italian Riveria
or just chillin’ in your backyard,
we have a tasty French rosé to recommend.
AIX comes to us from…well…AIX.
Aix is a city/commune in Provence in the south of France,
a region known world-wide for it’s wonderful rosé.
The AIX 2018 lives up to the region’s reputation.
Berry flavors combine with crisp acidity
to form a textbook French rosé.
If your goal this weekend is to stay
“fraiche comme le rose”
(fresh as a rose) or even better
“fraiche comme le rosé”,
AIX rosé will work just fine.
We found AIX at New Seasons for $15.99, Fred Meyer for $16.99,
Whole Foods and Market of Choice for $17.99
and QFC for $19.99.
Note: we did see a few bottles of the 2017 vintage
on the retail shelves.
We did not taste the ’17, only the ’18,
but from vintage to vintage, Provence rosés are fairly consistent.
