DESCRIPTION

La Joie de Poulpe (The Joy of Octopus) is produced by our favorite Rhone vigneron Christian Bonfils of Domaine de Boisson in Sablet. Christian sent us samples of his inexpensive 2015 Vaucluse rose, and while the wine was fruity, fun and fresh, the labels and the bottles were…a bit too conservative for our tastes.  We made a few changes, and since this rosé pairs perfectly with grilled octopus, we decided to make a fun label for this fun wine.
