This delightful offering from The General Wine Company is perfect for sipping on its own, enjoying with a summery meal, or adding a touch of elegance to any gathering.

A Feast for the Senses: Unveiling the La Combe Rosé

The La Combe Rosé boasts a beautiful light cherry colour that instantly evokes thoughts of warm summer days. Swirling the glass releases a delightful bouquet of aromas, where fresh and juicy red fruits like raspberries and strawberries mingle with delicate floral notes. A hint of spice adds complexity to the nose, hinting at the flavourful experience to come.

On the palate, La Combe Rosé is a burst of freshness. The juicy red fruit flavours from the nose carry through seamlessly, balanced by a delightful touch of minerality and a hint of spice. The wine is lively and energetic, with a crisp acidity that keeps the finish clean and refreshing. The alcohol content sits at a moderate 12%, making it a perfect choice for enjoying throughout the afternoon or evening.

Food Pairings: Bringing Out the Best in La Combe Rosé

La Combe Rosé's versatility is one of its greatest strengths. Its light and refreshing character makes it a fantastic apéritif, perfect for whetting the appetite before a meal.  For a touch of French flair, pair it with a selection of cured meats, olives, and marinated artichoke hearts.

However, La Combe Rosé truly shines when paired with food. The wine's acidity cuts through rich flavours and complements an array of dishes. Here are some of our favourite pairings:

  • Summer Salads: The vibrant fruit flavours and refreshing acidity of La Combe Rosé make it a fantastic partner for summer salads. Try it with a Niçoise salad featuring tuna, olives, tomatoes, and hard-boiled eggs, or a refreshing watermelon and feta salad with a mint dressing.
  • Grilled Dishes: The smoky notes from grilling pair beautifully with La Combe Rosé.  Think grilled chicken skewers with a lemon and herb marinade, grilled salmon with a dill sauce, or even grilled halloumi cheese for a vegetarian option.
  • Seafood: The wine's acidity cuts through the richness of seafood, making it an excellent choice for fish and shellfish. Enjoy it with a plate of moules marinières (French mussels in a white wine broth), seared scallops with lemon butter, or a classic fish and chips.
  • Spicy Food:  La Combe Rosé's refreshing character can stand up to the heat of spicy dishes. Try it with Thai curries, Indian curries, or Mexican fajitas for a delightful flavour combination.
  • Cheese: La Combe Rosé pairs well with a variety of cheeses. Opt for creamy goat cheeses, fresh mozzarella, or a mild cheddar for a well-rounded flavour experience.
