Saignée literally means “to bleed.” The clearest definition I’ve found is by Dictionary Central which states that saignée is: “a rosé wine that has a dark pink color; used to describe the process of pressing grapes lightly and not using this lightest-coloured juice, allowing it to run off, and then pressing the fruit again and collecting the darker-coloured juice. The higher skin-to-grape juice ratio results in a darker and more full-flavoured wine.”
What’s worse than being alone on Valentine’s Day? Still dating your ex who denies cheating on you with your best friend even though you caught them in the act! Some people are clearly delusional and should seek psychiatric help, or better yet, remain single! Just because you’re alone on Valentine’s Day, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it.
Choosing a bottle of wine is a lot like dating. Sometimes you’re looking for a long term relationship and other times you’re interested in a casual fling. Like a little arm candy by your side, often times you choose a wine to impress others like the ones that come in the form of a prestigious producer, gorgeous label or obscure varietal.
