$11.99 at The Wine Merchant, Raleigh. Stelvin or screwcap. Labeled as 13% alcohol by volume but seemed liked it might top 13.5%. Quiot family (label mentions 1748--year they first produced wine?) is located in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The 200-acre estate lies at the foot of Mont Saint Victorie near Aix-en-Provence. The wine is a blend of grenache, syrah, cinsault, cabernet sauvignon, and mourvedre.
I'm quite sure I've had this rose' from previous vintages at wine dinners at St. Jacques Restaurant. Salmon-pink color. Label suggests pairing with sushi, salads, pizza and mild cheeses. I had it with pocket pasta stuffed with veal served without a sauce. Flavors of slightly tart red berries along with a citrus influence. Stony minerality firms the texture. Dry wine with a rather lengthy finish. I prefer it slightly chilled as the label recommends. Would buy again.
