Domaine Gueguen Bourgogne Rosé

Domaine Gueguen Bourgogne Rosé

The intriguing aromas of this pale, bright copper ros&eacute blend watermelon and red berries with subtle wildflowers and a hint of almonds. On the palate it’s dry and crisp, with gentle but perceptible acidity to give it structure. Red-berry fruit follows the nose, with intriguing rainwater-over-stones minerality giving way to brisk, mouth-watering acidity and 12.5% alcohol in a long, cleansing finish. An excellent Bourgogne Pinot Noir rosé, fine at the table or for summer sipping.

Wine tasting goes virtual

Bouchaine Winery offers extensive virtual visits with wine maker face time, for a fee.

Wine is intensely personal: You smell it with your own nose and taste it with your own mouth. And yet wine is most enjoyable when the experience is shared. These points never seemed to be in tension until a worldwide pandemic sent most of us scurrying to the safety of our homes. Now we’re doing virtual tastings and winery visits on Zoom.

Domaine des Foudres Moulin à Vent

Domaine des Foudres

This 2018 Domaine des Foudres is 100 percent Gamay from the Beaujolais Cru Moulin à Vent. It’s dark reddish-purple, with good black-plum and mixed berry aromas and appealing earthy mineral notes of damp clay. Tart plums and berries fill the mouth, shaped by zippy fresh-fruit acidity and light, gently astringent tannins. It’s on the rustic side, but certainly approachable, a good wine with food.

Château des Reyssiers Régnié

Château des Reyssiers Régnié

Henry Fessy 2017 Château des Reyssiers Régnié ($16.99)

This clear, dark, reddish-violet wine’s aroma offers pleasant red berries, strawberries and raspberries and a whiff of black-cherry liqueur. On the palate it’s fresh, juicy, and tart, balanced if somewhat rustic cherry-berry fruit framed by crisp acidity. Very good Régnié, good with food.
