10 brilliant rosés that won’t break the bank

1. Château Coussin, 2016

The style: Dry rosé

The medal: Gold

The price: Approx £15

The sugar content: less than 1g/l

The producer: Famille Sumeire

The source: Provence, France

The grapes: 70% Grenache, 20% Cinsault, 10% Syrah

The taste: Our final rosé in this line-up is slightly pricier than the rest, but delivers plenty of personality for those extra pennies. Mixing sweet peach and lip-smacking pink grapefruit, it is beautifully clean and taut on the finish, but broad and mouth-filling too. A lovely example of a wine-style that’s actually extremely difficult to get absolutely right.
