Wine of the Week – La Petite Perriere Rosé 2014

This La Petite Perriere from the Central Loire Valley of France offers a beautiful and refreshing start to Spring and Summer rosé drinking. Saget La Perriere, the winemakers, views this as one of its banner wines. It is nicely balanced with subtle scents of raspberry, Morello cherry and hints of rose petals and nice minerality. Lively and bright, it invites us to enjoy the season.

The Saget family has been making wines since 1790. A newer designation, Vins de France, led them to explore and find the balance between the fruitiness of Southern varieties and their acidity when produced in Northern regions. This rosé is 12 percent ABV with a suggested retail price of $13.99. Visit www.pasternakwine.com for more information.
