Le Pavillon du Château Beauchêne 2006 Côtes du Rhône Rosé ($9.99)
Transparent reddish-pink, a true rose color. Ripe red-berry fruit and a whiff of fresh herbs on the nose. Crisp and dry, fresh strawberry flavor consistent with the nose, well structured by tart, quenching acidity. US Importer: Wine Adventures Inc., West Des Moines, Iowa. (Apr 24, 2008)
FOOD MATCH: Dry rosé works with a range of fare, from dinner salads to juicy burgers. It made an excellent match with Greek chicken baked in yogurt sauce.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
