In science news, it has been discovered by researchers that Rosés – those food-affirming, nay, life-affirming
dry pink wines made most beautifully from the Pinot Noir grape – actually cause the season known as “Spring.”
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, one researcher underscored his team’s findings by commenting “…the color of the wine…the color of the sunrise on the first day of Spring. You know, it can’t be a coincidence.”
It has long been thought that the rotation of the Earth upon its axis resulted in the changing of the seasons, but with confirmatory zeal the same researcher asked “How could we have been so wrong? It’s just so obvious now.”
Filled up with the flavors and aromas of strawberry and dried flowers and dancing lightly and refreshingly upon the tongue, the La Rochelle 2011 Pinot Noir Rosé is the perfect partner for shellfish and charcuterie; walks on the beach and playing with puppies. Available for a limited time. It can’t be Spring forever.
