Make sure to take a photo of this bottle--otherwise, after drinking it, you’ll constantly be asking yourself, “What WAS that?” What it is: a gorgeous little Cabernet-Franc-based rosé from winemaker Kevin Fontaine. Like strawberry lemonade became a very delicious savory wine. Pair with sunshine and a smile.
Raphaël Saint-Cyr recently inherited his family's estate and immediately began the conversion to organic–making him the largest certified organic domaine in the Beaujolais. His wines emphasize simplicity, elegance, and drinkability–perfect for the quenching of summertime thirsts. Raphaël's Beaujolais Rosé was lithe, characterful, and frankly downright stunning for the price. It was a huge hit as well with classic cookout fare.
