I was prowling around in the far reaches of the cellar when I discovered a forgotten wine, a 2008 Domaine Guindon Gamay Coteaux d'Ancenis VDQS Rosé, a Loire valley rosé. No doubt that it was purchased last year and quickly forgotten.
Dinner was left over salmon and a wild rice dish with peaches and avocado. We put a chill on the wine and opened it. Nice color, very fruity aroma, and a great taste of strawberries, a bit of cherry and maybe some rhubarb. Good acid and a bone dry finish.
Good, tasty wine that doesn't require thought, it just requires a glass.
12% alcohol and $10.
