Bila-Haut 2012 Rose

bilaAll of the Chapoutier Bila-Haut wines seems to offer a ton of bang for the buck, and this rose is no exception.

I have a high tolerance for mediocre roses, but I feel like I’ve had more than usual this year and I’m getting tired of the also-rans. Luckily, this widely available bottling is a home run at $13 or so. (It seems that the days when all of the good, cheaper Frence roses cost $9.99 are behind us, sadly.)

This is killer rose. It’s a pretty salmon color and dry and refreshing and tastes like strawberries. Buy it if you see it.

I like to drink and write about wine. I'm an equal opportunity drinker, but gravitate toward France, the Pacific Northwest and up-and-comers like New York and Virginia.
