Star Rosés of the Summer

Rosé is one of the most delicate wines and one of the most difficult wines to make well. The colour of the wine will depend on the length of time and on the temperature at which the nearly colourless juice of the grapes stays in contact with the skins: otherwise known as the maceration. The secret to creating the colour, aromas and elegance of the final wine all comes from this precise work.

Here is our selection of 2018 rosés, irresistible and indispensable for summer

Studio MIRAVAL, Côtes de Provence Rose

Studio By Miraval 2018, IGP Méditerranée

The distinctive name of this brand new cuvée from the Pitt-and-Jolie-owned estate in Provence recalls previous owner Jacques Loussier, who in 1977 built a recording studio on the property, which has hosted great names like Indochine, Sting and The Cure. In fact, Pink Floyd recorded their monumental album The Wall at the Miraval recording studio. And the melody of this beautiful rosé? Mineral, slightly savoury and very floral... A soothing refrain from a beautiful vintage!

CHÂTEAU LEOUBE LE SECRET DE LEOUBE 2018, Côtes de Provence Rose Millesima

Château Léoube
Le Secret de Léoube 2018, Côtes de Provence

The « secret of Léoube »… An enigmatic name that arouses curiosity. At first sight, this Provence rosé shows off a pale pink colour in the glass. On the nose, well-defined aromas of white fruits and citrus come through strong. Finally, the wine develops in the mouth a generous, luscious texture upon a palate rich in flavour. Perhaps the secret behind this wine has to do with its versatility in the culinary arena: a rosé perfect for an aperitif, but also a great companion to beef tartare, grilled fish and fruity desserts.

DOMAINE DES CAMPAUX METALROSE 2018, Côtes de Provence Rose Millesima

Domaine des Campaux
MétalRose 2018, Côtes de Provence

A very high-end rosé, MétalRose offers an alternative to the traditional approach to Provence rosés. A very modest production, old vines, fermentation in 600L oak barrels, ageing on lees until the Christmas after harvest, and presented in a metallic "rose gold" bottle... MétalRose is definitely not a common choice. This rosé is delicious and refreshing, with great complexity and length, as well as an ageing potential of several years.
