Coeur de Camargue Rosé 2016
Rosé can be made from all manner of grapes. The Coeur de Camargue Rosé 2016 ($17) is a blend of 70 percent merlot and 30 percent caladoc (a grenache/malbec hybrid). It’s surpassingly refreshing with surprising depth, spot-on balance and a lovely finish. Most of all, it’s delicious. Emanating from a tiny region called Bouchees du Rhône at the river’s mouth, this lively French rosé bears a label paying exquisite homage to the wild horses of a nearby national park. As with most rosé, it should play very well with most any appetizers and seafood, but this one’s sturdy enough to pair with burgers and brats.
