Guilhem Moulin de Gassac 2009 Rosé

It’s a beautiful, sunny day in Portland, so I thought it appropriate to break out the first bottle of pink wine for the summer!

Wine Name: Guilhem Moulin de Gassac Rosé

Blend of 55% Syrah and 45% Grenache. 20 year old vines.

Origin: France (Languedoc-roussillon, Vin de Pays de l’Hérault)

Grapes: Syrah and Grenache, from 20 year old vines.

Cost: about $12

My thoughts:  The color of this wine was a really pale pinkish orange. It smelled like ripe peaches and honey. The flavor was crisp with just a hint of acidity and a medium finish. This would be great for an apertif or with fish or chicken. I can imagine drinking this all summer long.

First pink wine of the year!
