It’s no secret that I have an obsession with Costco, especially it’s wine department. I recently bought a bottle of their Kirkland Signature Côtes de Provence Rosé because I know that Costco sources their Kirkland wines from top notch wineries and therefore it should be good stuff. For $8.99/bottle, I’d say it was more than just good stuff! It was a damn good rosé!
Over the last year I’ve fallen in love with rosés and to find one under $10 that makes me smile is beyond fabulous! It’s crisp and refreshing and perfect for summer! In fact, I’m going to Costco this week to prep for a Memorial Day BBQ and plan on picking up more! I found on CostcoWineBlog.com that Provence AOC rules mandate that wines are estate-bottled, and because wines are made from grapes that are grown specifically for rosé production, it’s difficult to find an AOC Provence Rosé for under $10. Thanks Costco for having such a kick ass wine department!
Most Provence Rosés are some combination of Grenache, Cinsault, and Mourvedre. This wine also includes Tibouren, Rolle (Vermentino), Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon. This rosé isn’t too fruity and I promise you will enjoy it! Get to Costco now!!!
