A beautiful Saturday evening, and our first meal outdoors this Spring.

Whole-roasted Branzino, and the first of the “All-Chateau Signac Weekend,” starting with the Château Signac Rosé Dona Clara 2012 – a drop-dead, gorgeous rosé from the Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages of Chusclan.

This is bone-dry “saignée” (a bleeding of juice from red wine) which just dances on the palate. Particularly good with whole-roasted fish (in this case, garnished with thinly-sliced, roasted orange slices), fresh, crusty baguette and lots of olive oil.
