# Lou, Peyrassol, Cotes de Provence, 2018

# Lou, Peyrassol, Côtes de Provence, 2018 has the color of a pink rose in the glass.  The nose has aromas of bright summer berries: raspberry and strawberry, with some citrus highlights in the background.  The palate has a bright citrusy start with plenty of mandarin orange and some pineapple as well.  Tart raspberry and wild strawberry balance out the flavors with nice acidity to round out the smooth mouth feel.

# Lou, Peyrassol is a blend of 40% Grenache, 40% Cinsault and 20% Rolle, each grape is pressed and vinified separately and blended to finish 3 months in stainless steel tanks. Rolle is a white grape found in the South of France.   In the north of Italy it is known as Vermentino, in Sardinia and Corsica it also goes by Vermentino.

# Lou is meant to be a fun and friendly wine to enjoy all summer, by the sea, sunset on the backyard deck or a warm and sunny afternoon picnic.  All good choices, but why limit IMG_2650IMG_2651IMG_2652 wines to summertime?  Crackling fireplace, snow falling outside?  How about a nice glass of roséwhile enjoying some after dinner fruit to keep things light.  Even a dinner of crispy fried chicken with the # Lou is a way to keep things light and hold on to thoughts of the warmer weather a few months away.
