Wine of the week: 2016 Aime Roquesante Rose 

Cotes de Provence, France

Retail $12

Vintners in the Provence region of southern France have perfected methods to make elegant rose wines that are balanced, versatile and structured. Aime Roquesante is among a dozen wine-growing estates around the village of Vidauban, located 25 miles from the Mediterranean coast and the tony village of St. Tropez. Vineyards enjoy plenty of sunlight during long, dry summers, allowing grapes to ripen and develop soft acidity. The wine has low alcohol-by-volume (ABV) content at 13 percent. It combines three important and bold red grapes from the region: cinsault, grenache and syrah. In the glass, it offers floral bouquets, a hint of peach, red berries and spice notes. On the palate, taste strawberry, citrus and watermelon. Drink it as an aperitif or with barbecue, boiled crawfish, salads, fried chicken, Asian dishes, seafood, fruit and soft cheeses. Buy it at: Cost Plus World Market.
