Les Deux Rives Corbières Rosé

Les Deux Rives Corbières RoséYes, it’s another rosé we’re reviewing today.  And it’s another wine with Rhone varietals.  This one also comes from a place not too far from the Rhone — Corbières in the Languedoc.  This is a province in the south of France, bordering the Mediterranean Sea.  This is a fantastic area for value wines too.  I’m often curious about wines from this province.
This rosé is a blend of 40% syrah, 40% grenache and 20% cinsault.  If you’re familiar with Rhone wines, then syrah and grenache are certainly familiar grape varieties to you, but you may not be as familiar with cinsault.  Cinsault is another red grape variety, but it’s also a very useful grape for rosé and is commonly found in rosé from Corbières.
