10 brilliant rosés that won’t break the bank

5. Château La Sauvageonne Volcanic Rosé, 2016

The style: Dry rosé

The medal: Silver

The price: Approx £15

The sugar content: 1g/l

The producer: Gérard Bertrand

The source: Languedoc, France

The grapes: 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 20% Syrah

The taste: This beautifully-presented biodynamic rosé from the south of France is a brilliant find, made using grapes from mineral-rich soils with volcanic origins in the desirable Terrasses du Larzac in the Languedoc. It’s a rosé laden with ripe red fruits and rose petals, that’s also layered and creamy. Tight and fresh on the finish, but with a broad mid-palate texture, this rosé benefits from a subtle oak-influence – a small proportion of the wine is aged in barrels.
