Organic Bordeaux Rosé bargain.

  • With the current high popularity of rosé wines, you have to really look for a bargain. I wouldn't have expected to find it in Bordeaux, much less an organic selection.
  • Les Hauts De Lagarde Bordeaux Rosé opens with cherry, orange, coriander, honey and grassy/herbal aromas. On the tongue, you get great acidity and body that carry the best sensibilities of a Bordeaux blend. 12.5% ABV. Real cork. Local price/750 ml: 11.
  • The blend is 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec. The grapes were grown in Saint Laurent du Bois in the Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux.
  • Press reviews for this rosé have been quite good, including a 90 point rating from Beverage Tasting Institute.
  • Delicious by itself, this wine pairs well with flavorful chicken or seafood dishes. I drank it with a shredded chicken thigh barbecue sandwich, a superb combo.
