“Drinking wine was not a snobbism nor a sign of sophistication nor a cult; it was as natural as eating and to me as necessary.” ― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
Don’t get caught up in the chase for the shiny new cult wines. The hunt for the “best” is an fruitless quest; Ego Wines won’t love you tomorrow, and your bank account will be empty. Instead, go for easy-drinking casual elegance. Wine Harlots love the French Jean-Luc Colombo Cape Bleue Rosé as an everyday table wine. Fresh, fun and food-friendly, this wine is affordable and delicious.
Jean-Luc Colombo Cape Bleue Rosé has subtle notes of strawberries and works will with light summer cuisine. We paired it with second-day Shrimp & Vegetables, for a quick, casual lunch. The music match is any of the Buddha Bar soundtracks.
The details: 12.5% alcohol. Cork closure. Appellation: Méditerranee. Grapes: syrah 67%, mourvèdre 33%. Retail price: $9-12 USD. Imported by Palm Bay International. The wine was provided by the importer as a promotional sample for editorial consideration.
