Provence Rosé - We Drank, We Liked!

Jump to last reply

Almost the entire time we were in the south of France, we noticed that the French, in table after table in bars and restaurants, were drinking Rosé. Something I've always kind of snubbed my nose at, thinking it was a somewhat sweetish concoction that would make me spit up!

But on our last night in Nice, curiosity got the better of me, and I asked the waiter at the pizzeria if it was dry. He assured me it was, and brought me a demi bouteille of the area's local cheap rose colored drink.

I am now a CONVERT!!! Light, refreshing, 12.5 alcohol content, it was yummy delicious! Now I found the reason why in the south of France the Provence Rosé consistently outsells the white.

In fact, my husband, the beer drinker, tasted it and . . . hold on! Liked it more than his beer!

While my mom and my sister spent 185 euro for their last dinner at a nice restaurant along rue Massena eating fish and drinking 2 1/2 bottles of expensive wine, our absolutely fabulous last night's meal of moules & frites and 4 cheese pizza, a large pression and the half bottle of rose only set us back 42 euro.

NICE!
