We love good rosés at Chambers Street - from organic estates that vinify naturally with wild yeasts, with long fermentations and élevage that can last into late spring or early summer. These are roses of terroir that perfectly express the vintage, grape varieties and soils and which often take a year or more in bottle to drink at their best. Today we're offering some of our favorite 2017 rosés - they will drink beautifully throughout 2019 and offer sensational value! And for those of you addicted to the best Cabernet Franc rosés of the Loire, we offer a fabulous pre-arrival case price on the 2018 Olga Raffault Chinon Rosé, arriving in late May...
(Was $13.99) This is one of our favorite Rosés every year - the 2017 Cuvée de l'Aubigue is a sensational wine and a fabulous value - and it's drinking beautifully as we head into the summer of 2019! Made from Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah and Vermentino grown on soils of clay and schist near Hyères in Provence. Biodynamic farming, wild yeast fermentation. Lovely light salmon color. The nose carries beautiful aromas of delicate strawberry and white peach, along with nectarine, pink grapefruit, and white blossom. The palate on the 2017 is slightly denser and juicier than the 2016, but it is still framed by good acidity and a hint of minerality, making this a crisp and delicious everyday summer rosé.

(Was $16.99) Domaine les Fouques has been has been certified Biodynamic (Demeter) for over 20 years, and also raises sheep, ducks, chickens and guinea-hens on their old-fashioned mixed-use farm. La Londe is their best rosé from old vines of Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, and Rolle. Unlike the majority of Provencal rosés, it is made naturally with wild yeasts, giving a more subtle expression of fruit and terroir. The 2017 is a beautiful wine, lighter and brighter than the 2016 in style. The wine shows a lovely pale pink/salmon color with elegant aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry, peach and rose with hints of spice. The palate shows creamy raspberry, peach and red currant fruit with citrus peel and mineral flavors. The finish is long and refreshing with berry fruits, citrus and firm acidity, just lovely. This wine will gain complexity over the next six months and will drink beautifully through 2019. Highly recommended and a great value! David Lillie
(Was $11.99) Thierry Navarre is one of the few people who still grow Oeillades - a nearly extinct grape that has a long history in the Langudedoc and is thought to be an old cousin of Cinsault. Thierry's Oeillades grows on the rugged mountainsides above Roquebrun in Saint-Chinian. The 2017 shows a beautiful wild strawberry and purple-tinged color in the glass. The nose offers abundant strawberry and orange aromas with delicate notes of lavender, cardamom and dried rose petals. The palate is light and wonderfully lifted with flavors of ripe strawberry, herbal tea, and refreshing exotic citrus on the finish. A balanced rosé with plenty of aromatic complexity and crunchy acidity to pair with a variety of dishes. We recently enjoyed this with Mediterranean-inspired fried food - a highly recommended pairing! Amanda Bowman
(Was $19.99) The delicious "Il Meticcio" is a blend of Canaiolo, Malvasia and Ciliegiolo - a blend dedicated to their mixed breed dog "Tiberio." The wine shows a beautiful pink/orange color and aromas of red currant, cranberry, blood orange and rose, quite lovely. One finds bright red currant and tart morello cherry on the palate which is ripe and sapid but light and refreshing with stone and mineral flavors lingering in the finish with red fruits and citrus. Quite delicious now, this should drink beautifully over the next 12 to 24 months.
A mellow peach color in the glass, this rose is a little softer than Rootdown's other offerings, but it exhibits much of the herbal, mineral, and tea-like aspects associated with this grape. Trousseau planted in 2004 is gently foot-trod upon arrival in the winery, followed by spontaneous fermentation and cold-stabilization. Herbal, with fine green-apple fruit and a smudge of earthiness, this light and elegant rose is a great food wine. I had with hummus, tabouleh, foule, and baba ghanouj, with which it went famously. These magnums are incredible party bottles in addition to being exclusive on the east coast to Chambers Street Wines! Andrew Farquhar
(Was $13.99) Another delicious wine from the affable and talented Eric Laguerre, from organic Syrah, Carignan and Grenache vines grown on granite soils high in the mountains of the Roussillon. The palate is refreshing and dry with hints of raspberry, strawberry, watermelon, almond and stone. Eric's great farming, his natural vinification and the high-altitude granite terroir produce this lovely, inexpensive rosé. Highly recommended!
Only available in case (12 bottles) quantity, special pricing for this offer! Wines arrive late May.
At Chambers St. there are certain roses that we prefer with a bit of time in the bottle. Some are quite rare, like the Tibouren from Clos Cibonne, and others are rather unassuming wines that happen to benefit greatly from a little bottle age. The Dão rose from Casa de Mouraz is a perfect example. A straightforward blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinta-Roriz, Alfrocheiro, Jaen and Agua-Santa, it provides all the flavor and character of a red wine, without the tannin or dark red fruit. A bit of candied strawberry on the nose, medium bodied, with lingering red cranberry notes on the dry finish. The wine is more settled than it usually is when it first arrives, and the aromas are more subtle and not as fruity. A great rose to pair with anything from salads to barbeque. Grapes are hand-harvested, de-stemmed and macerated for 2-3 hours. Indigenous yeast fermentation. (Was $16.99)
Our domestic rose magnum this summer! Peter and Rebecca Work of Ampelos consistently produce some of the most delicious Pinot, Syrah, Viognier, and Grenache in Santa Barbara County. Farming and sustainability are central at Ampelos - they are Demeter certified biodynamic, SIP certified, and even their bottles are produced in California. Their 2016 rose is fresh and flavorful, combining 80% Syrah, farmed and harvested specifically for rose, 15% Grenache, and a 5% splash of Riesling from recently planted vines on their estate. Juicy watermelon and strawberry blossoms, with crunchy pomegranate, blood orange, and orange zest. Ariana Rolich
