La Ritourelle (which seems to mean song or refrain, hopefully not the one by Sebastien Tellier) is an uncommonly delicious and elegant rosé from our friends Pierre and Catherine Breton in Bourgueil. 100% Cabernet Franc, of course.
- Beautiful aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry, peach skin, citrus peel and rose.
- The palate is bright and refreshing with raspberry, orange zest, citrus, white pepper and stone flavors. It's light in body but with lovely length and density and a pretty finish of berry fruits and minerals.
- Cold Cuts
- Pork Chop
