2013 L'Argentier Rose d'Aramon

Languedoc, France

comment

$15 Retail

The family-run Chateau L'Argentier was founded more than 75 years ago in southern France's Languedoc region. This wine is made entirely from old-vine aramon, the most planted red grape in France from the late 1800s to the mid-20th century. It was fermented in concrete vats before bottling. In the glass, the pale salmon-hued wine offers refreshing aromas of light citrus, raspberry and strawberry notes. On the palate, taste subtle hints of melon, tart cherry, an engaging minerality and crisp acidity on the finish. Drink it with shrimp or crab appetizers, grilled or broiled fish, fresh berries, soft, mild cheeses and pear or beet salads with goat cheese and spiced pecans. Buy it at: Swirl Wine Bar and Market and Dorignac's. Drink it at: Swirl Wine Bar and Market.
