Domaine Albert Mann 2010 Furstentum Grand Cru Pinot Gris (Alsace Grand Cru)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $34
Rich, full bodied and medium dry, it is powered by ripe fruits, lychees and pomegranates. A spicy undertow brings along some acidity to this concentrated wine. Drink from 2016.  — R.V.  (7/1/2014)

Château Sainte Marguerite 2013 Cru Classé Grande Réserve Rosé (Côtes de Provence)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $29
The palest of grey-pink rosés, this is classy, fresh and fragrant. It has a light, orange-zest texture as well as tannins and a mineral edge. Very fresh, it is also worth aging a few months.  — R.V.  (7/1/2014)

Château Vignelaure 2013 Rosé (Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $23
This is a rich, smooth, vanilla-flavored wine that is impressively ripe while keeping all its freshness. It has a sense of concentration, with ripe strawberry and red cherry fruits and enough structure to allow it to age. Drink from 2015.  — R.V.  (7/1/2014)

Château d’Esclans 2012 Garrus Rosé (Côtes de Provence)

  1. $100
This full-bodied wine pushes the concept of rosé to its limits. Wood-aged and rich, it conveys a sense of structure, mature fruit and delicious toastiness. It has already been aged an extra year, but would benefit from cellaring even longer, so wait until 2015.  — R.V.  (7/1/2014)

Domaine des Diables 2013 Bonbon Rosé (Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $20
This rosé needs to age. It has a zesty, crisp and mineral texture that is tight and nervy. As it softens, more red fruits will come to the front, although the structure will remain, making this a serious rosé for drinking with food.  — R.V.  (7/1/2014)

Domaine Saint-André de Figuière 2013 Confidentielle Rosé (Côtes de Provence La Londe)

  1. $52
Pale salmon pink, this is a beautiful wine both to look at and to taste. It combines a light touch of red fruits with bright acidity and a rich texture. Fresh and pure fruited, it will age through 2015.  — R.V.  (7/1/2014)

Domaines Ott 2013 Château Romassan Rosé (Bandol)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $45
The palest of rosés is also a serious wine. It has a firm and mineral character that goes along with ripe red fruits and a tight texture. It needs to age for a few months and is really meant to go with food.  — R.V.  (7/1/2014)

Estandon 2012 Estandon Légende Rosé (Côtes de Provence)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $23
After an extra year’s aging, this wine’s richness is very apparent. It may have lost immediate freshness but it has gained in ripe fruits, in texture and in depth. It’s a complex wine worth pairing with food.  — R.V.  (7/1/2014)
