Our selection of high quality rosé from Provence, Champagne and the South of France
It’s for a good many reasons that Provençal rosé now serves (and is served) as the go-to pink to be enjoyed whenever the sun comes out. Or even if it doesn’t come out. Typically, a luminous, pale, wild salmon pink, aromas of delicate, gentle red fruit and pepper and chiselled, mineral elegance briskly driven on the palate, there is often nothing so perfect as a good Côtes-de-Provence rosé. Here we also taste a more ethereal side of those blockbuster, red southern Rhône varietals: grenache, syrah, carignan, cinsault... Sit down with a plate of shellfish and a decent bottle from our selection and those fields of lavender and azure horizons don’t feel so far away.
