As I often opine, when you look at the entry-level wines produces by a quality-oriented Vigneron, the quality of their more expensive wines tend to filter on down. That's always the case with Guillaume Gonnet's wines. Although he's famous for Châteauneuf-du-Pape, he also has wonderful vineyard holdings in Rasteau, Lirac, Cairainn, Tavel and Côtes du Rhône AOC.
The Le Rêveur Rosé says Côtes du Rhône on the label; however when it's in your glass, you'll swear it's Côtes de Provence AOC. Le Rêveur features all the best qualities of Côtes de Provence Rosé without the steeper price tag.
In the glass, this Rosé is superbly fresh and lifted, opening with notes of white flowers and red berries, leading to a vibrant palate bursting with strawberry and wild raspberry. The finish is clean, dry and zippy, leaving you longing for another sip.
Enjoy this terrific Rosé chilled, out on the deck or by the pool. It's an excellent match for all the foods of summer and will shine with spicy foods from the grill.
