Chat. La Roche St Jean rosé, Bordeaux '19 ** $

A merlot/cabernet sauvignon blend. Aromatic, fruity, fun.

 

Dom de Millet Rose, Cotes de Gascogne '19 **1/2 $  VALUE

The ultra-obscure egiodola grape with some syrah. Vibrant, classy.

 

Les Ligeriens Rose d’Anjou '19 **1/2  $  VALUE

Predictably plump, agreeably off-dry, tremendous flavors. Great.

All of these wines can be purchased at Kenilworth Wine and Spirits.
