This is a very different summer from any we’ve had in the past. But that doesn’t mean that you should write off a good rosé. Rosé is exactly what we all need right now, because it’s such a beautiful, delicious reminder that sunny days absolutely do lie ahead. Here are two that truly inspire us, both the lightest pink color and singing of fruit:
Sainte Beatrice, Cotes de Provence, a wine with a mineral texture and almond flavors. Taut and tight, it hints at fruit rather than shouting about it. The result is a rich, rounded wine, full of ripeness and best with food rather than as an aperitif.
Chateau Roubine, Cru Classe, light and fruity, a typical Provencal wine, salmon pink in color, totally refreshing. Delicate and subtle aromas of lemongrass, spices and hops.
