I know what you're thinking- Guiberteau makes a rosé?!? The answer is yes, and it's just as delicious as it sounds. Just in case you're not familiar with this icon of Saumur, Domaine Guiberteau is one of the top producers of the Loire and is known for making some of the best Saumur Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc on the planet from his special plots on the hill of Brézé.  The estate is now run by Romain Guiberteau, and his wines are loved by both the somm community and the critics. In addition to his family's pedigree, he also trained under the great Nady Foucault (of the ultra allocated and revered Loire estate Clos Rougeard). Becky Wasserman may have said it best- "Romain Guiberteau owns some of the best land in Brézé, and makes dry chenins of punk rock violence, yet of Bach-like logic and profoundness."  We can't get enough of his Saumur Blanc and Rouge around here, so when we found out he also now makes a rosé we couldn't bring it in fast enough. This is 100% Cabernet Franc is sourced from some of Romain's old vines in Brézé and Montreuil-Pellay. The whole cluster berries are vinified to be a delicate pink rosé that is the perfect combination of quaffable and complex. Fans of Domaine Tempier and Chàteau Simone's textured, slightly savory rosés are sure to find a new favorite in Guiberteau's, and production is small at a mere 6,500 bottles. - Kelly Rau
