Mother’s Day gift idea: Aldi’s award-winning $8 rosé arrives in stores Wednesday

Forget the roses for Mother's Day. Instead, buy her rosé.

That would be the Cotes de Provence Rosé, that is, available at Aldi for $7.99 a bottle starting Wednesday, May 8.

The award-winning Exquisite Collection wine from France is described as having "delicate yet intense flavors of strawberry and white fruit aromas, with a subtle quartzy spice."

Pair it with salads and grilled fish, or serve as an aperitif.

This is the same pretty in pink wine that made headlines when it was introduced in Europe and was selected as the No. 1 wine in the world by the International Wine Challenge’s Great Value Awards in 2018 and 2017. It also was awarded 18 medals — five silver and 13 bronze — in 2016.

The wine quickly sold out the last time it was offered, so you had better make a beeline for stores on May 8. Aldi also has cute Mother's Day pop-up cards for $1.99 and gift bags for 99 cents.
