One of the few wines you will find anywhere with the endorsement of a world-class author. The great French writer Rabelais was a native of Chinon, a notorious celebrator of fine wines, good times, and even excess, and enamored especially of the wines of his place of birth. Fittingly, Plouzeau puts his picture on a wine in no way serious, except seriously delicious and fun to drink. If bubbly is inherently celebratory, rosé is the wine of luxurious relaxation, easy to drink and enjoy, and one can imagine Rabelais, deep in composition, happily quaffing Plouzeau’s Rive Gauche. Fresh and lively as a pink should be, made of Cabernet Franc as most rosés are not, it’s crisper and more weighty, alive, present, and on point. With a touch of tannic warmth and pepper sliding along under red apple, raspberry, and red currant fruit, it sports a more focused center than its Provençal cousins, where everything comes together and the wine, like a poem, just makes sense
