2019 Ame du Vin Cotes de Provence Rose

As far as summertime Rosé goes, the Kirkland Cotes de Provence Rosé for $10 remains my top choice and I’ve still seen a few cases of it lingering around in Costco stores around the Atlanta area which is a surprise. It’s typically one of the fastest moving Kirkland bottles of the year.​​ I thought it …

2017 Gerard Bertrand Cremant de Limoux Brut Rose

I snapped a couple of these bottles up the instant I saw them. Even though this is a wine I’ve never tasted before, there are a lot of good things going on here. First, the producer, Gerard Bertrand, is one of my favorite French producers. They make a wide variety of wines from many different …

2018 Commanderie de la Bargemone Coteaux d’Aix en Provence Rose

This was the only Rose at my Costco on the day I was there that I hadn’t tasted before, so I figured I’d give it a shot.  And I’m glad that I did and have the chance to report back to all of you. This wine is absolutely delicious and completely caught me off guard.  …

2017 Chateau De Berne Inspiration Cotes de Provence Rosé

I just picked this one up the other day and wanted to get the review out as soon as possible.  This Rosé has a retail price around $20, and Costco’s standard price was $15.69, which is pretty good and in that 20% off retail range like many of Costco’s wines. But it has a special …

2018 Kirkland Signature Cotes De Provence Rose

This wine tends to move quickly once it hits the aisles at Costco.  This is not surprising considering it’s an $8.99 Provence Rose.  These wines are almost always at least $12 per bottle.  Apart from that, this wine is consistently approachable and a good value.  The perfect light-salmon color is appropriate for Spring and all …

2018 Willamette Valley Vineyards Whole Cluster Rose of Pinot Noir

At the end of last year, we did a feature story where we blind tasted three Pinot Noirs from Willamette Valley Vineyards, all of which are available at select Costco stores.  And we really enjoyed them. Next up is their Rosé which is made from Whole Cluster Pinot Noir.  Given their expertise in crafting Pinot …

2018 Boschendal The Rose Garden Rose South Africa

I cannot recall coming across a South African wine in Costco prior to this one from Boschendal. I have definitely been asked if Costco carries South African wine, likely because most wine lovers know that some really excellent juice comes from this country. Needless to say, I was excited when I saw this. Some of …

2017 Kirkland Signature Cotes de Provence Rose

Ok, I know it’s Monday and the next review should technically not come out until Wednesday, but we had to get this one in your hands right away based on how fast this wine sold out last year. We could only be talking about the Kirkland Cotes de Provence Rose that is hitting stores right now …

The Best of Santa Barbara 6 Bottle Boutique Wine Sampler

Here’s a fun set of wines that you don’t see every day packaged up in a nice suitcase with detailed notes on every wine for only $49.99 at Costco right now. I’m told this set is primarily in California Costco stores but keep an eye out for it elsewhere along with other California region specific …

1.5L Segura Viudas Cava Spain NV

We reviewed this wine a couple of years ago, but since 1.5 liter bottles recently arrived in select Costco stores, I thought that I would revisit it with fresh eyes as we approach the holidays. 1.5L bottles, otherwise known as “magnums” are good to serve in a group setting since each bottle yields around eight …

2016 Domaines Pierre Chavin Cotes de Provence Pierre & Paul Rose

This is a lovely Cotes de Provence Rose for only $9.99.  The blend is 60% Grenache, 20% Cinsault and 20% Syrah, so it has a little pepper and spice, which I really enjoy. The wine pours a nice salmon color and kicks off a little of that pepper on the nose. In the mouth though is …
