Rosé is hot this summer, especially because sipping this cool and crisp wine on a hot August day is just what anyone needs. Rosé is great any time of year, however there’s just something about summertime and this “pink” wine that makes you feel like you’re enjoying this season the right way.
Nolita’s newest wine bar, La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels is offering a $40 rosé flight night special. This features four French rosés hand-selected by Sommelier Fabien Suquet. Fabien is charming, smart, and has a wonderful palate. His passion for great wine and introducing any level wine enthusiast to some of the best France has to offer when it comes to this style of wine is what this program is all about. Rosé isn’t just a “trend” here, it is an appreciated wine style that makes for a fun flight night.

Available Monday-Thursday from 5:00-8:00 pm, these rosés are all stunning in their own way. These wines are dry, crisp, and refreshing with hints of fresh berries, ripened fruit, and floral notes. Many mistake fruity wines for being sweet, when the “fruit forward” notes are expressed within the descriptions, so I’m here to tell you that these wines are playful but not sweet. They will awaken and liven your palate to some amazing French wines, and how can you beat it for what averages to be $10.00/glass? It’s one of the best deals in the city right now and I dare you to give it a try!
