I finally found it and there was a whole corner of it still left – the Kirkland Signature Cotes De Provence Rose, which might be the fastest selling Kirkland wine of the bunch. This is going to move fast so if you see it, buy it.
The reason being is that this is consistently high quality French rose that Costco brings in for only $9.99, which is worth noting $1 more than the 2018 vintage. But still an amazing and unmatchable price for this juice.
The blend this year is 48% Grenache, 25% Cinsault, 11% Syrah, 9% Carignan, 4% Ugni Blanc and 3% Tibouren. It’s a very similar breakdown compared to past years and our tasting notes remain very similar as well. And that’s great news, since this new 2019 vintage continues the streak of this bottle over-delivering for the price.
The wine pours a pale salmon color with some red berries on the nose. In the mouth it’s strawberry and plenty of it, rounded out with a little cranberry and peach. Clean and crisp into the finish, this wine is just begging for warm weather and summertime fun.
In case you missed it, we just published a massive review of all Kirkland wines, comparing ratings throughout 10+ years. The Cotes de Provence Rose was among the highest rated wines, and with good reason.
I only bought six but that’s because my cart was starting to look borderline ridiculous with my other quarantine wine stashing. I look forward to enjoying them this summer and hope to scoop up a few more sometime.
If this sounds like the kind of wine you like and you find it, pull the trigger on a few. Once you open the first one, you’ll be glad you did, and it’s likely it will be gone on your next trip to Costco.
