2009 Regis Bouvier Marsannay Rose 

Burgundy, France / $18-$24 Retail

This delightful rosé produced in the Cotes du Nuit's furthermost appellation, Marsannay, is made from the region's only permitted red grape, Pinot Noir. Following fermentation, the wine is barrel-aged for 10 months with 25 percent new oak. While the rosés from the Loire and the south of France rake in most of the attention, this bottling can hold its own as a gentle quaffing wine, but is sturdy enough to stand up to many different foods. Crisp and refreshing, the wine offers floral notes and delicate red berry aromas leading into strawberry, tea, orange and watermelon flavors with a lengthy, acid-balanced finish. Chill and serve with barbecue, grilled fish, salads, desserts, Asian cuisines and spicy dishes. Buy it at: The Wine Seller, Bacchanal and Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket. — Brenda Maitland
