Jean Baillette-Prudhomme Cuvée Rosé de Saignée Premier Cru
Appearance Cherry colored, with shiny copper reflections, and fine beads rising to the rim—we could stare at this beauty all day.
Nose Hints of bread crust and bright strawberry.
Taste Light acidity rounded out by fresh fruit and a full finish. Dark cherry and ripe strawberries play with hints of citrus and a distinct minerality.
Food pairing Pair with tart dried fruit, a fresh spinach salad sprinkled with goat cheese, or a salty hunk of dark chocolate.
Story In filmmaking they call it the magic hour, when day tips into night and the light blazes gold, illuminating everything with a dreamlike glow—the lush trees through the window, the low-slung brick buildings that line the street, the face of the woman sitting before you. You want to close your eyes to sear this moment in memory. But to miss even one second would be unbearable. Her full glass swings into view, and you raise yours too.
