La Resistance Organic Côtes du Rhône Rose 2019


French Rose. Is there anything hotter? It comes in many guises, including some premium offerings for which one pays top dollar. The problem with that is that they are available only in very limited supplies and no one wants to be paying silly money for daily drinking. So the quest becomes a search for a terrific drinking rose at a good price. May I introduce…

This is a blend of grenache and shiraz, made organically. Pale pink, it offers notes of rose petals, musk and Turkish Delight. There is also a hint of iced vo-vos (do we still even have them? If not, younger readers will think I’ve lost it). Soft, attractive, fresh and it lingers, what more do you want? My score wobbled between 89 and 90, but this, chilled on a summer day, would be so perfect that 90 it is.
