For the first time ever in the U.S., Pink bubbles from our favorite, Bisol. The 2019 Bisol “Jeio” Prosecco Rose is a tasty, refreshing sparkler that comes from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. This is the first year the family has made a pink Prosecco, but I’m lobbying for this every year. Inviting aromas of flowers and wild strawberries, with a complex mouthfeel that sings with citrus fruits and creaminess from the tiny crisp bubbles. This is a ‘must have’ this holiday season.
This is classic Cotes de Provence Rosé from one of the oldest, most respected producers in the region. With over 800 years of winemaking, Peyrassol is best known for their iconic clay and limestone soils that produce mouthwatering Rhone blends. Their 2019 Reserve Des Templiers Rosé is wonderfully crisp and energetic. With a mix of cherries, mango, nectarines and lemon zest flavors and a piercing, dry backbone that ties it all together and gives it a lasting finish.
The 2020 is a light bright pink color. Aromas of high-toned red berry and flowers just fly from the glass and pick up a slight savory accent as the wine opens up. Juicy and fresh on the palate, offering wild strawberry and citrus rind flavors that deepen and spread out on the back half. A long, focused and bone-dry finish showcase amazing energy for what is sure to be a new happy hour go-to and Tuesday night Hall of Famer.
The fresh off the boat 2020 Effet Papillon Rose is made 100% from Grenache (as many of the best Southern French Roses are). Pale salmon in color, it boasts aromas of bright red fruits, orange rinds and a hint of lemon zest. It’s incredibly smooth and dry, making it a great food wine– but this Rose is serious with depth and complexity, making it worthy of enjoying on its own.
This one floods the senses upon opening, hitting with waves of fresh tropical fruit, citrus and herbs de provence. It has vibrant flavors of bright raspberry, nectarine and bing cherries with fresh tropical fruit, citrus and a hint of spice. It’s super well-balanced and well structured to boot — simply a delight to pair with this warmer weather.
For the first five years of Nicholas Wines, I always put out a 6-pack with some of the best wines that Melissa and I are enjoying at home. But last year, when all hell broke loose, I decided a case seemed more appropriate. Since we’re not out of the woods yet, I’m keeping it a case for this spring, but I have four new wines this year (3 btls each) that are sure to pair well with the sunshine and warm weather. Great on their own or with food, I’ve thrown in some wines you’ll know with some you might not.
The “Rosé All Day” variety 6-Pack!
Clos Julien Rosé of Pinot Noir Arroyo Grande 2020 (2 bottles)
Bisol “Jeio” Prosecco Rosé 2019 (2 bottles)
Chateau Peyrassol Cotes de Provence Rosé 2019 (2 bottles)
The newly released 2020 Para Maria de los Tecolotes Rosé (affectionately named after Ruben’s wife and partner, Maria) is once again 100% Syrah, salmon-pink in color, with a great nose of ruby red grapefruit and Honeycrisp apple. Bone-dry and low in alcohol it is a classic Rosé very much like the first one Melissa and I discovered on a trip to the south of France many, many years ago. But this one is probably a little juicier than I ever remember it. Vibrant and roaring out the gates!
For the very first time, superstar winemaker Anne Sery has made a pink wine for her meteoric Trousse Chemise brand. The NYC restaurant favorite tapped into some new fruit sources in Southern Oregon to pair with her Willamette Valley vineyards to make a Rosé of Pinot Noir with vibrancy and balance to pair with its elegance and depth. We’re lucky to be the first ones with Anne’s debut Rosé, but I can assure you it’s so good, it won’t be her last.
