Industry News: Rosé Piscine, the French Rosé Made to Drink on the Rocks, Launches in US Following Millennial Success in France and Brazil



NEW YORK, May 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Rosé Piscine, the French rosé specifically made to drink over ice, is arriving for the first time in the US market, just in time for summer. Rosé Piscine, with its eye-catching blue and white striped bottle, appealed instantly to Millennials in France and Brazil, where the brand was initially launched. These Millennials did not want to drink the same wines, the same way as their parents and Rosé Piscine caught on like a Millennial wildfire. Today, the brand sells several million bottles a year in those two markets.

Rosé Piscine has an equally compelling backstory.

Jacques Tranier, a French wine executive on holiday in St. Tropez, observed beachgoers ordering rosé in cognac glasses over ice, which some waiters called rosé piscine. He ordered one and found that it was refreshing, but as the ice melted it tasted watery and lacked the typical rosé acidity and crispness.

Upon returning to the winery, Mr. Tranier and his winemaker took it upon themselves to create the perfect rosé to be served over ice, by targeting a specific and proprietary acidity, residual sugar content, mouth feel and appearance; Rosé Piscine is now a trademarked name of the company.

"Rosé Piscine is an uncomplicated, fun, and irreverent rosé tailored to the way many Millennials drink rosé on the rocks while on the beach or boat, at barbecues or poolside in the Hamptons," explains Blake Helppie, whose company, Altitude Capital Trading, LLC (dba Rosé Piscine USA) is the exclusive US importer and brand manager of Rosé Piscine. Helppie, along with a Brazilian business partner, introduced the Rosé Piscine brand in Brazil almost two years ago.

Stephanie Meyer, the US brand director with Rosé Piscine USA adds, "We believe that our organic social media focus and strong event line-up, including La Nuit en Rosé in New York City from May 18-20, 2017 and Dan's Taste of Summer Rosé Soirée in Southampton on May 28 will rapidly drive national excitement around the Rosé Piscine brand in the US, exactly as we built the brand in Brazil and France."

Condiment Spotlight: La Tourangelle Grapeseed Spray Oil



The same expeller-pressed grapeseed oil you know and love now with the convenience and efficiency of an all-natural, non-aerosol spray can! Grapes have seduced humans for centuries with their fabled red and white nectars. But they have another aspect too: When pressed, tiny grapeseeds yield green-colored oil with remarkable properties. Grapeseed oil has a light flavor and contains a high level of polyunsaturated fat. It can also be heated up to 450°F, making it the ideal healthy cooking partner.



Spray directly onto your pan, non-heated grill or finished dish. Grapeseed oil can also be used in skin products, aromatherapy and cosmetics.


Health benefits

As one of the richest natural sources of linoleic acid, grapeseed oil can do wonders when it comes to fighting heart disease and bad cholesterol. Linoleic acid is a member of the polyunsaturated fatty acid family. These fatty acids tend to blend with cholesterol in the blood and transform it into something the body knows how to get rid of.

Wine Spotlight: Luc Belaire Rosé



BELAIRE ROSE is handcrafted from a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah grapes selected for their vibrant, fresh character. Each of these three grapes adds something special to the wine:

• Grenache gives body, warmth and hints of blackberry and blackcurrant
• Cinsault adds aromatic cherry blossom on the nose, finesse, and a supple texture to the finish
• Syrah accounts for BELAIRE ROSÉ’s beautiful color and provides roundness and a toasty richness to the wine.

Carefully aged before release, the blend is imbued with a delightful effervescence, resulting in a beautiful, deep red sparkling Rosé with aromas of strawberry and blackcurrant. A final liqueur de dosage addition of 100% Syrah adds a sweet - but not too sweet - nuance, resulting in a perfect harmony of aroma, taste, body, and finish.


Each bottle of BELAIRE ROSÉ is born in southeastern France's Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur region, the stunningly beautiful home of the famed coastal cities of Marseilles, Nice, Cannes, St. Tropez, Antibe, Grasse, Toulon - and the world's finest Rosé wines.

Roughly 150 miles wide from the Cote d'Azur (French Riviera), Monaco, and French Alps along the Italian border to the east to the Rhone River valley to the west and Mediterranean to the south, this picturesque setting provides a lush backdrop for the crafting of the wines that have made the region famous.

Here, amid sun-drenched vineyards cooled by the Le Mistral sea winds, against the stunning backdrop of the snow-capped French Alps, wines have been made for more than 2,500 years. This rich heritage of wine craft and perfect terroir for cultivating the grapes of the Rosé blend can be experienced in each glass of BELAIRE ROSÉ.



About the company:

According to legend, the monk who first tasted sparkling wine famously exclaimed, "Come quickly - I am tasting the stars!" The monk's "stars" - the tens of millions of bubbles in each bottle of sparkling wine - were the "big bang" of the world's love affair with bubbles.

At our Maison, established in 1898, 6th generation winemakers oversee production of each bottle of BELAIRE, ensuring that the perfect balance is realized in each bottling, maintaining the delicate, refreshing blend characteristic of our cuvées. Read More
