Have you ever tasted something that tastes like a sunny beach day with your very best friend (okay unless you hate the beach, then wherever your dream vacay is!)? Well, this is it! I thought I had a favorite that stood out against all the rest, but California Roots rosé has some S E R I O U S competition with ROSÉ-VOUS? rosé–it is perfectly delicious & smooth. Since this rosé was only $4.99, I was a little skeptical at how good it would taste & its overall quality, but dang it’s good!
During my last Aldi haul this bottle’s aesthetics drew me in quickly. I immediately fell in love with the color of the wine & the label / info on the back quickly convinced me to give it a try. This is the first time I have ever seen this rosé at Aldi, so I’m not sure how long it’ll stick around.
ROSÉ-VOUS? hails from the Languedoc South of France & is 70% Syrah / 30% Grenache. Syrah is a dark-skinned red grape that is very floral-y in its youth, & Grenache is a red wine grape that is extremely versatile. Grenache-based rosé is a signature wine style of south France & is common among Côtes de Provence wines. Grenache’s ABV can be as high as 15% because it is grown in very hot environments; most rosé has an ABV of 11-13%.
This fresh, fragrant rosé is medium-bodied & dry with sweet notes of strawberry & berries. ROSÉ-VOUS? is definitely more delicate than some of the other rosé wines I’ve tried, & it’s easy on the palate. I have to say this rosé has the most delicious aroma of any rosé whose bottle I’ve popped! It is clear in appearance & there has a great flavor intensity. The quality of this rosé is definitely unmatched in my opinion for the price point. Overall, I rate ROSÉ-VOUS? 5 / 5. No matter where you are in your rosé tasting journey, this dense rosé will be your new fave!
Fruity & fabulous–this rosé will not let you down. This is definitely something I want to stock up on before Aldi doesn’t carry it anymore. I know you will too!
