9 rosés to try before you die

5. Aix Rosé, 2016

The style: Dry rosé
The medal: Gold
The price: Approx £20
The sugar content: 2g/l
The ABV: 12.5%
The closure: Natural cork
The producer: Maison Saint Aix
The source: Provence, France
The grapes: 60% Grenache, 20% Cinsault, 20% Syrah
The taste: The top blend from the Maison Saint Aix, this is a classic Provençal rosé, with redcurrants and raspberries, bright acidity and even a touch of chalk, giving a mouth-watering dry sensation on the finish. Pretty and persistent, this is the perfect aperitif for when you want to pretend you’re in the French Riviera.

    A nice cold pint of real ale is much more immediate refreshment than any rosé

    Some of these rosé wines sound lovely. Rosé wines seem quite popular at the moment and the average quality has seems to have improved. I was a bit disappointed to see that nearly all those presented come from France and none from Italy. I have tasted some fabulous Italian rosés ….. at fairly approachable prices.
