Excellent Gris du Vendômois

In summer, bringing rosé wine when you are invited to friends’ home is quite normal. But if you want to differentiate yourself and surprise them, choose a bottle of Gris du Vendômois, excellent but little known rosé wines. Produced near the town of Vendôme, 170 km southwest of Paris, they are made from Pineau d’Aunis, a grape variety little grown outside elsewhere that gives to these fresh and fruity wines a nice peppery taste.
