Wine Of The Week (27)

Yesterday was hot.  As in 90*F/32*C hot.  Now, personally this suits me just fine.  But David (NoH’s trusty sommelier) found the heat rather uncomfortable and proclaimed “All I want is a nice crisp glass of rosé, a swimming pool and a girl to enjoy them both with!”  Alright, so the last part has nothing to do with wine and he’ll probably kill me for writing it.  However, the first part is relevant, so I felt like it was appropriate to share.  Right??? (He is so going to kill me…)

Okay, back to the Rosé.  This week’s suggestion from David is the Jean-Luc Colombo Coteaux d’Aix-En-Provence “Rosé de Côte Bleue” 2009.  It’s fresh, it’s crisp, it’s peachy, it’s rosy and it has a little surprise lime in the end. And how about the $8 price tag?  I mean, what more could you ask for??? (Well if you are David, a girl and a pool, but you get the point!)


  1. I don’t think I’ve ever tried Rosé, but with an $8 price tag, I’ll definitely have to check it out!

  2. Oh my, I actually can’t wait for real hot weather! Thanks for this one, going to add to my list, I do love a nice Rosé! -xxoo

  3. The peach & lime sound lovely. And for just $8, hmmmm……

  4. It all sounds good. A peach and lime combination, an $8 price tag, and the idea of enjoying it on a hot day, sitting by a pool? In my book, it’s a winner. I’ll add it to my list. Thank you for sharing this one.

    BTW, I’ve been away for most of the week. So, I’m slowling making it through all of your posts for the week. I hope your doing well.

    • Robin-
      Glad you are back!!! I’ve been visiting your blog all week wondering if you had quit the blogosphere!!! Glad that isn’t the case!! Thanks for visiting and commenting…. as always, I really appreciate it!

  5. I almost bought a bottle the other day but I passed on it. I’ve never had Rose so I went with the Moscato.


  6. I’ve never tried it before but sounds good. I’m usually a Pinot Grigio gal. :) Thanks for linking up with the Weekend Wind Down.

  7. I like your site and will be returning to read more posts!

  8. It does sound like David has the right idea though !! LOL

  9. Love this post! Is it weekly? I am always looking for a good wine.
