M Chapoutier “Beaurevoir” Tavel Rosé, 2012

photo 1Summer.  Fresh fruit, new vegetables, BBQ.  Flowers in bloom.  It feels so good and you’re in such a good mood that every year (every year) when the sales clerk sells you on a sensational bottle of rosé you take the bait.  And every year it’s the same old same old; whites and reds are better.  I’ve had rosé on five continents and all I can say is, “Myeh…”

This wine does not reserve a review but, in all fairness, $30 is a princely sum for mediocrity.

Price: $29.99 at Everything Wine and, actually, more expensive at other private stores.

Market Liquidity: Like a zillion summer movies; here one week, gone the next.
