Tricks and Treats with Rosé

Halloween is a time for tricks or treats – from delicious candy apples to scary spooks – it’s a time for frightful delights. This Halloween weekend, I enjoyed a glass of 2016 Fleur de Rosée Rose, which was definitely a treat!

It’s from Côtes de Provence, the largest appellation of the Provence wine region in south-eastern France. It covers roughly 50,000 acres of vineyards, which produce the vast majority of Provence’s rose wine.

It’s dark salmon in color and has a floral and fruity aroma. It’s crisp and light on the palate, and isn’t too dry or too sweet. It’s a medium-bodied rosé with berry, citrus, and mineral notes. I like my rosé a bit more light and bright,
but it wasn’t a bad choice. I saw it online for about $15, making it a good value. I paired it with a spooky table setting and friends. 2.9/5.
