Puff Pastry Tomato Tart—casual gourmet meets summer rosé [Recipe Inside]
August Wine and Food Pairing
Our new rosés have arrived! Languedoc rosés are some of the best in the world and tend to sell out quickly.These refreshing rosés are perfect for the warm weather, enhancing the fresh flavors of summer and keeping the mood lively.
This month, we've paired a Magical Puff Pastry Tomato Tart (recipe below) with Le Rosé Gariguette, Chateau de L'Engarran Rosé, or (and!) Asphodèles Rosé. Enjoy!
2018 Le Rosé Gariguette
100% Cabernet Franc
A Languedoc rosé from Cabernet Franc grapes? Tasting is believing! The saignée method gives more color than a typical rosé. Mouthwatering, summer-ripe berry aromas. Big aftertaste changes to beautiful finish!
DOMAINE CHÂTEAU DE L'ENGARRAN
2019 Chateau de L'Engarran Rosé
80% Grenache, 20% Cinsault
Princess loves the exotic and irresistible female allure of this wine made by Diane Losfelt, whose winemaking credo is "good wine is made in the vineyard, not in the cellar." Grenache Noir brings soft, round fruit, Cinsault tastes ripe and juicy—perfect together in this fine rosé!
DOMAINE DE LA ROCHELIERRE
2018 Asphodèles Rosé
Syrah, Grenache, Colombard
The addition of Colombard is the real magic of this rosé. The organic vineyards sit near the Mediterranean Sea so the grapes are bathed in sea breezes, giving a special freshness to this wine.
