Top 10 celebrity rosé brands

John Legend, LVE Côte de Provence Rosé (£20)

Smooth crooner John Legend also has a slice of the rosé pie with a Provence pink that forms part of his LVE wine range, made in collaboration with flamboyant Frenchman, Jean Charles Boisset, who heads up Raymond Vineyards in California.

The pale pink is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault grown on pebbly sandstone soils in Côtes de Provence. According to Legend, the wine pairs a treat with his fried chicken recipe. On the palate expect notes of fresh picked strawberry and white nectarine, along with a distinct minerality from the stony soils.

The All of Me singer also makes a Southern French sparkling pink with notes of red current and pomelo, which Boisset describes as being “voluptuous”. Legend and Boisset launched the LVE range in 2015. In addition to his pair of French pinks the range includes a Napa Cabernet and a Carneros Chardonnay.

“That process of continuing to blend a wine until you get it exactly where you think it’s perfect, and you feel like it’s opened up and all your senses are thrilled by it, I think it’s a similar process to when the music comes together and you’re waiting for that perfect mastering process,” Legend told Wine Spectator in 2019.
