This rosé from Château Coussin belies its very pale appearance with masses of ripe red fruit on the palate, although it also delivers all the delicate refreshment of great Provençal rose, with a light body, floral aromas and a long mouth-watering finish. A delicious and balanced drink.

    You might be surprised to know that one of the biggest export markets for South African rosé wine is ……. France. That’s right, France. Where does it all go? Can you buy bottles in your local Intermarche? No you can’t. The reason? It’s inside of those bottles labelled as ‘French’ rosé wine. Santé! mes amies.

    Pretty sure, that Minuit Rose is owned by Chateau d’Astros, not d’Escarelle? Very surprised not to find any Bandol wines, I must say.

    • Minuit Rose isn’t owned by Château d’Astros nor Château de l’Escarelle – it’s a privately held brand and its supplier varies between these 2 vineyards (as they have a very similar taste & specs) according to markets.

    More like best french rose, but 1 good Italian did get in. Missed Montes cherub rose and a bunch of good usa rose.
