Rosé

French for “pink”, Rosé is used to describe a category of refreshing wines that are pink in color but are made from red grapes. There are three ways to make rosé wine: skin contact, saignée and blending. There are many different styles of rosé, and the resulting wines are usually a result of both the grapes and techniques used.

Château Saint-Maur 2014 Clos Capelune Rosé (Côtes de Provence)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $60

Situated in the hills above Saint-Tropez, this vineyard is one of the highest in Provence. The wine has a fresh, cool character with lively acidity layered with berry and currant fruits. It is crisp, tight and as complex as a Provence rosé can be.

Château d’Esclans 2011 Garrus Rosé (Côtes de Provence)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $90

A powerful, wood-aged rosé that shows great richness, density and structure. Treat this as a fine wine and you’ll appreciate the texture, the mature berry fruits, the spice and vanilla flavors. Weighty and full in the mouth, this could even age well for another year or two.

Château Coussin 2014 Cuvée César à Sumeire Rosé (Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire)

  1. $60

This is as serious as Provence rosé can get. It is a limited production wine, selected from the best Grenache (75%) and Syrah (25%) parcels. Structured and impressively dense, its red fruits are concentrated, bone-dry and with a textured character. It is ready to drink although it will become richer from early 2016. The Sumeire family arrived in the Sainte Victoire…

Château les Valentines 2014 Grande Cuvée No. 8 Rosé (Côtes de Provence La Londe)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $29

From the mountains inland from Saint-Tropez, this finely textured and deliciously fruity wine from old vines is a blend of 50% Cinsault and 50% Mouvedre. In this well-balanced wine, fresh fruits are cut with acidity and given weight by a ripely spicy character. It’s full in the mouth while remaining completely fresh.

Domaine Saint-André de Figuière 2014 Confidentielle Rosé (Côtes de Provence)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $33

You can tell this is a prestige cuvée by the weight and shape of the bottle. The wine does justify its packaging, a rich and smooth offering that’s structured and textured without losing sight of generous fruitiness. Orange peel combines with red berries to give a full while fresh wine. Try aging it for a few more months and drink at the end of 2015.

Château d’Esclans 2013 Garrus Rosé (Côtes de Provence)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $90

Onion-skin pink in color, this wood-aged wine is opulent and ripe. It is textured, with generous red fruits that are given a great lift by the spice and pepper that fill the mouth and give the wine power and richness. The acidity is well integrated, finishing the wine with freshness. A far cry from so many fruity rosés, this is a serious wine.

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.
