Southern Rhône + Refreshing Rosés - May 14 Vintages Release



This week's LCBO Vintages Release on focuses on (mostly Grenache-based red) wines from the Southern Rhône region of France. As well, 3 styles of Rosés from various wine regions around the world - just in time for the Spring/Summer patio season.

The Ladybug from Malivoire is one of my favourite Rosés - and the 2010 looks to be a winner! My red wine picks for this week all look like they will reward if aged for 1-2 years. See for yourself and enjoy this week's selection!
