Gaudete, 2017.

It's Gaudete Sunday, once again (funny how that happens).  My rosé of choice for this third Sunday of advent is a little something from the Côtes de Provence, a 2016 Fleur de Mer.  I picked this wine because I liked the name, Flower of the Sea.  And also because I felt like continuing with the French-themed weekend I am having; TWWIAGE's Christmas shindig, last night, was at a French restaurant.
A lovely pale salmon-pink, the Fleur de Mer is a little lean, but it does have a little bit of citrus, a little bit of white-heart cherry and a distinct briny vibe.  Of course, I could be just imaging that.
Sing it Maddy!

VG: Had this wine in May; thought it was quite "lovely", one substantial word we shared in our describing this Rosé.
I went with 'Steeleye Span'!

NHW: A little thin, but pleasant enough with food.

Thud: A ha...I need to listen to Slade, right now. (Course, girls doing Ramones Christmas was much more festive.)
