If you’re looking for an enjoyable, versatile and inexpensive wine to sip while celebrating the 4th of July, I’d suggest picking up a bottle or two of Cellier des Dauphins Côtes du Rhône Reserve Rosé 2019 (10.99).
This French Rosé from the Rhône Valley is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault grape varieties. It’s pale color, according to the winemaker, is a result of early harvesting in the fresh daybreak hours and a gentle pressing of the grapes.
The wine was aged on lees, which contributes minerality and emboldens the red fruit flavors of the wine. It is crisp and acidic, making it a good foe for a number of foods from summer salads to burgers on the grill. It’s also ideal just to enjoy as an aperitif.
