Alanna McIntyre's Picks

Warmer weather and longer days call for easy drinking wines to sip on a sunny patio or pack for a picnic.  I recently had the Mimi rose from Petite Riviere and was pleased by its crunchy red fruit, dry crisp palate and easy drinkability. 

Made from the red grape Dechaunac, a French-American hybrid developed by legendary French hybridizer Albert Seibel (1844-1935).  This is a force carbonated wine, which is totally acceptable and as a result makes this a very affordable and fun fizzy rose.  Refreshing, juicy, easy drinking, “miam miam” as they say in French. No need to overthink this one.
