Refreshing Rosé is Here

Sara Sparks | May 16, 2020

Every time the months turn warm again, I look forward to the simple pleasure of watching a wine glass fog up with cold rose. When sourcing that chosen bottle to pour, my strategy is to stock up on a range of styles and let the occasion at hand determine which one to open. 

Classic rose from Provence is my pick for aperitif hour, the delicately fruited wine from Ch. Peyrassol is one of the first bottles I uncork each summer. With favorites on hand like Sotheby’s Own Label Sancerre Rose, I know I’ll have a perfect match for lobster salad or lunchtime fare. A new addition to our selection, Abbatucci Faustine Rose from Corsica, offers a delightful way to taste the native grapes of the island.

For a treat, I’ll reach for Sacha Lichine’s Garrus, a seminal French rosé coming from vines over 80 years old, which has a complexity similar to great white Burgundy. And in a moment when I I’m looking to brighten the mood, large formats of Rock Angel and Domaine Ott immediately evoke smiles from my companions.
