|On a recent vacation to Portland, my wife and I had an extravagant tasting menu at Noisette. We only wanted to drink one bottle of wine, and we decided on a Bandol Rosé. Rosé is incredibly versatile with food, and this was the only wine that we thought would match up to the entire succession of seafood, meat, and vegetable dishes. As the bottle sat on the table, it gradually warmed to room temperature, evolving from a fresh and lively “white” into a deep, vivid “red.” The rosé was perfect with each and every dish — all nine of them! Props to the celebrated chef Anthony Demes, who envisioned that unforgettable meal.
