what I’m drinking: $11 rosé
Decent wine for $11? I’ll admit that bottles in the $12 and under category usually end up as cooking wine in my house, but the 2009 Château de Campuget Tradition rosé surprised me: fresh, zingy, cleansing—a very drinkable dry pink quaffer, perfect to have on standby in the frig. No, it doesn’t have the drama of Sacha Lichine’s $85 Provençal rosé, but I’d be very happy if one of my non-wine geek friends brought it out for a weekend barbeque this spring. Details? It’s 30% Grenache Noir, 70% Syrah, appellation Costières de Nîmes.
