Château de Campuget Rosé

“Style is a simple way of saying complicated things.”  —  Jean Cocteau

Rosés get derided as simple wines, but are really are elegant and stylish wines.  They present as simple and easy, but there is complexity under the surface.  The Château de Campuget Rosé is great example of a stylish rosé at great price.  The color is bright pink, with notes of raspberries and French strawberries, with good acidity.  It will pair well with a cheese board, or turkey or holiday ham; but we believe the perfect pairing is Bacon Wrapped Fig & Blue Cheese Stuffed Pork Tenderloin.

The details: 13% alcohol.  Screw-cap closure.  Appellation: Costières de Nîmes, France.  A blend of 70% syrah and 30% grenache.  Actual retail ranges from $8–11 USD.  Imported in the US by Dreyfus & Ashby.  This was a media sample generously provided by the winery, facilitated by Millissime.

The music match is “Pas Ce Soir” by Thierry Stremler from the compilation Le Pop 3.  Not Tonight, isn’t in the Wine Harlots lexicon, but we will make an exception for this catchy tune, but we suggest you Qwoff some rosé tonight.
