Made from the juice of gently pressed Cabernet Franc grown on a sandy riverbed, Joguet’s rosé is among the first rosés to continuously ship to the United States—since the late ’70s! If its gorgeous hue, aromas of rhubarb and tart cranberry, and bone-dry finish are what made it such a hit, then this new release is yet another success. It’s about as thirst-quenching as wine gets, each sip beckoning another until all that remains are a fragrant few drops resisting at the bottom of your glass.
Pinot Gris is a chameleon of a grape, able to give drastically different styles of wine depending on its region of origin and production methods. In the Upper Loire appellation of Reuilly, the traditional treatment yields a pale vin gris that reflects the grape’s pinkish, grayish tint at ripeness. Vigneron Denis Jamain accomplishes this by letting the fruit sit for a few hours in the press during the slow, gentle pressing cycle, ensuring a wine of the utmost delicacy with just the slightest hint of color from limited contact with the skins. This expression of Pinot Gris features a shimmering freshness, its silky texture punctuated by a saline focal point that makes it especially mouthwatering.
