Commanderie de la Bargemone Rosé

The very best rosé wines in the world are produced in the Provence region of France, and the epitome of rosé class, style and tradition is Commanderie de la Bargemone. The winery is an 800-year-old domaine on the Mediterranean in the southeast corner of France, where the vines grow in stony soil yielding limited-quantity, quality wine. Although Bargemone makes serious rosé, selecting it is an effortless affair requiring no study of terroir, vintage and such. This “summer in a bottle” provides a sophisticated surprise displaying up-front flavors of rich red berry fruit, a mid-palette of wild flowers, and a finish of herbs de Provence. Not just for the French Riviera jet set, rosé is making a splash at fine restaurants everywhere. You can find Commanderie de la Bargemone Rosé for $19 at Roux Wine & Spirits on Airline Highway in Prairieville. Or go north to the Little Village Restaurant, where this Grenache blend pairs perfectly with the fresh Gulf fish.
