Top 10 serious rosé wines

Rosé is a category often unfairly and unjustly thought of as just a bit of fun, but with sales booming is one which should be taken seriously.

From pale pink to wannabe red, rosés are often quaffed with gleeful abandon; quaffed but not appreciated, rarely swirled nor sniffed nor slurped.

For as much as most of us like a glass of blush, rosé has a bum rap. It’s great chilled on a hot day, its a thirst quencher.

But attitudes are changing with rosé wines finally getting the respect they deserve.

The category has been booming in recent years with sales of Provence rosé magnums in the UK alone set to double this year. 

While Majestic reported recently that sales of its Provençal rosé had grown by by 84% last year with the UK wine merchant now claiming to hold a 47% market share of the category in the UK.

In reflection of its increasing popularity, the drinks business launched its first Global Rosé Masters this week taking rosé wines from across the world to be judged by an expert panel, the results of which will be published shortly.

But for now, take a look at which rosé wines are currently getting UK and US wine writers’ and critics’ tongues wagging, in no particular order.

    These prices are flat out absurd IMHO. Why people would pay these prices is beyond me. There are some very fine examples for 8 to 12 dollars per bottle
