Nine delicious rosés over £20 for summer 2018

The category of fine rosés is fast-emerging, and we bring you the best examples of pricy pinks from this year’s Rosé Masters, comprising nine brilliant wines from France, Italy, Australia and California, ranging from a little over £20 to almost £100.

These nine pricy but brilliant rosés hail from France, Italy, Australia and California

Over the following pages we have selected the top-scoring wines from our Global Rosé Masters 2018 – highlighting the quality available for those prepared to pay fine wine prices for pink products (and why not?).

Each of these wines has achieved a Gold medal or higher in the competition, which is highly impressive considering the rigorous nature of our judging process and the exacting palates of our judges – who are listed below.

The nine rosés that feature come from a range of regions, but most of them are from Europe and, you probably won’t be surprised to learn, the majority are from France, with several from Provence in particular.

Each of these wines has been judged blind, allowing our experts to asses them purely for quality without prejudice about their brand or source.

The rosés were tasted over the course of one day at 11 Pimlico Road in London’s Pimlico on 19 April.

While this is just a selection of the top-performers, you can see all the medal-winners in The Drinks Business Rosé Masters 2018 by clicking here.

Meanwhile, the best of the best can be seen over the following pages.

The judges: (L-R) Patrick Schmitt MW; Jonny Gibson; Andrea Briccarello; Patricia Stefanowicz MW; Tim Jackson MW; Lauren Eads; Alistair Cooper MW; Nicola Thomson; Roberto Della Pietra; Tobias Gorn
