Wine of the Week: Jaboulet Côtes du Rhône Parallèle 45 Rosé 2006 (FR) $ 12

By July 10, 2007

Follow me on:

The 2006 Jaboulet Côtes du Rhône Parallèle 45 Rosé is a tip top summer wine, perfect for crab salad, couscous and grilled pork chops. This wine is named for the specifics of the vineyard's location, on the 45th latitude. Jaboulet is one of the Rhone Valley's famed wine houses, with a focus on quality, careful oak aging and producing a well presented fruit-forward Rosé wine. The flavor profile is dominated by rich red berry, mainly cherry, raspberry and strawberry with a surprisingly full finish. Great color, vibrant aromas and a crisp minerality make this a refreshing summer sipping wine.
