These are some of our favorite "real" rosés - each one is from certified organic or Biodynamic farming on small family estates and is vinified with indigenous yeasts, giving wines with subtle, natural aromas and flavors. You'll find earth and mineral notes in the finish, making them superb food wines as well as delicious and refreshing aperitifs. And remember, as Eric Asimov says "a rosé can bloom in winter as well" - enjoy them all year round!

Please note - your Extra 10% off will be added when processed and will only appear on your final invoice. Yes, you may include non-sale items in your order but they will not receive the extra 10% off. Offer valid 8/9 and 8/10 on case purchases only. The wines are in stock in our store or warehouse, please allow until Friday 8/12 for pick-up or shipping.

Laguerre 2021 Côtes du Roussillon Eos Rosé

We've always loved Eric's rather full-bodied rosé, made from Grenache, Carignan and Syrah, but this year he decided to make a lighter, fresher wine from Grenache Gris and Grenache Noir and it's really delicious! it shows a pretty, pale pink color with subtle aromas of rose and raspberry. The palate is fresh, light and round with lovely red and yellow fruit flavors, quite crisp and long. This is a complex, refreshing and delicious rosé and a sensational value!  David Lillie

Lambert, Patrick 2020 Chinon Rosé (9/21)

(Arrives 9/21) This delightful Chinon Rosé comes from Patrick Lambert's 6 hectares of organic vines in Cravant, around the corner from his friend and mentor, Bernard Baudry. Hand harvested from 20-year-old Cabernet Franc vines on gravel and sandy clay soils over limestone. The 2020 shows lovely aromas of wild strawberry and raspberry, citrus and rose; the palate is silky and ripe with raspberry, cherry, citrus and stone flavors with nice density and texture,  with juicy acids, berry flavors and saline minerals in the finish. This is drinking beautifully now (August 2022) and through the winter. This is a fabulous value and highly recommended.(Note: Some bottles have naturally occuring tartrate crystals which disappear when chilled and have no effect on flavor)

This is a real rosé of terroir, dry and balanced with moderate alcohol which needs a bit of time to open up.
