Everything's Coming Up Rosé
A fruity rosé is the perfect wine for l’apéritif, that very French tradition of drinks and light snacks before dinner. It’s also the perfect warm weather wine: cool and refreshing. A glass of rosé makes me feel like I’ve been transported to Provence. Instead of looking at the trees out my kitchen window I’m gazing at fields of lavender or sunflowers. At other times it invokes the Côte d’Azur, with its seaside restaurants, glowing sunsets, and perma-vacation atmosphere.
Any wine that can do that is a wine worth drinking. Often.
