Sable de Camargue, France
Jess - 3.5/5
Rosé, not something I know too much about based on the bad experience of growing up with a mom that drank nothing but cheap white zinfandel. I decided that it was time to figure out what rosé is all about.
I picked up a handful of moderately priced bottles from different places, made from different varietals and Dune Gris de Gris was one that made it into the shopping cart.

- Varietal/Blend: Grenache, Cinsault, Carignan
Crisp, refreshing, pale salmon rosé with decent acid and not too sweet. Aromas of grapefruit, white peach, and a hint of strawberry. Tart citrus flavors in the finish.
Though we enjoyed this wine on a hot, Florida afternoon without any snacks, it would likely pair well with lighter food choices. I did find the second glass less appealing as I think the acid was a bit much with out food.
A nice salad with some salmon and a creamy dressing or some lighter pork or chicken would probably balance out the acidity. I probably wouldn't buy the DUne Gris de Gris again, but that is because I tend to prefer rosés that are a bit sweeter.
