This week’s Wine Wednesday will be quick but enthusiastic. Last week I was craving a summery wine and decided that I wanted a French rosé. I walked out of my local LCBO with the Remy Pannier Rosé d’Anjou 2011, for $12.05.
I was really, really impressed. This Loire Valley charmer is the best rosé I’ve had in a long time. The Remy Pannier is luscious, refreshing, and fruity, with some lovely herbal hints to balance out the strong strawberry-and-watermelon note on the palate. It would be perfect with spicy BBQ chicken, fish, or Thai food. I know the $12 price point is higher than I usually suggest, but trust me — this wine’s worth it (especially in the US where it seems to retail for $7-10 a bottle). Delicious!
