It’s no surprise that everyone is in love with rosé. It’s fruity, floral, refreshing and super smooth. What’s not to like? As per stats, Provence exported 30 million liters of rosé last year as opposed to five million liters 10 years ago. Here are five exceptionally good rosé wines from Provence that you have to try, as per a study by Crummbs UK:
Ferghettina Franciacorta Brut Rosé DOCG
We all know Champagne is France’s personal pride. However, Italy has managed to create a pretty good counterpart and that’s Ferghettina Franciacorta Brut Rosé DOCG. This bubbly rosé is delicate, comes with notes of berries and a biscuity finish. And the bottle is absolutely gorgeous. Gifting material much?
Marks and Spencer Champagne Delacourt Rosé Brut
Although the name may remind you of an mid-level expensive clothing line, that’s not it. M&S, along with Reims-based Champagne house, Castelnau has created a blend of the best grapes the region has to offer. This particular wine brings together pinot noir, meunier, and chardonnay. It’s a berry explosion on your taste buds with a nice finish of pepper and cinnamon spice.
Chateau d’Escalans Whispering Angel
The name is accurate – this is the angel of rosé wines. Considered as the best one in the market by experts, this wine has a beautiful salmon color and comes with a blend of aromas including strawberry, peach, rose water and orange blossom. This rosé has a silky smooth finish and it’s perfect for cocktails and barbecue. It’s from Provence, the holy land of wine, so we shouldn’t be surprised by how good it is.
Chateau Minuty M de Minuty Limited Edition Ashley Mary Rosé 2017
First of all, the stunning limited edition bottle by pop artist Asley Mary, representing the best of Saint Tropez, is an absolute eye-catcher. Secondly, this rosé packs bold flavors like grapefruit, orange peel, and sweet berries into one bottle. This is again, a very Provence style rosé.
Domaine d’Antugnac Rosé Turitelles
All credits to mother nature and the limestone-rich soil in Languedoc region, the grapes used to produce this particular rosé are unique. A very balanced mix of Syrah, Cinsault and Merlot grapes, this refreshing wine is just delicious. It’s so smooth, you can gulp down a bottle and still not know where it all went.
