Try some rose!

I certainly can't remember which it was, or for that matter the name of the girl I had it with, but one of my fondest wine memories from my early years was sitting on the docks in Nice with a pretty girl, a bottle of Cote du Rhone Rose, a bagette, and a wonderful bouillabaisse that some fishermen had made and shared with us. Believe me, for a 19 yo from the States, it was bliss.
Steve Edmunds of Edmunds St. John says the 2009 Ameztoi Rubentis is the best Rubentis he's tasted. I bought some of that. Plus another Basque rose a fan of the Rubentis says is better.
The article mentions a Donkey and a Goat and that's always tasty. The full skin contact makes it very serious.
I've already had some of the Rubentis that Steve mentioned and here are a couple that we had while recently in Paris, 2 of which are from Corsica and I rather doubt I will see them again...
2009 Clos Canarelli Vin de Corse Figari
2009 Domaine Comte Peraldi Ajaccio
2009 Domaine Saint André de Figuière Côtes de Provence Vieilles Vignes
A house favorite of ours is:
Langlois-Château Cabernet de Saumur La Bretonnière Sec
2009 Château de Lancyre Coteaux du Languedoc Pic St. Loup Rosé ; had it over the weekend and it was very nice. thumbs up
