For a great value rival to the wines of Provence, look to Bordeaux. Here, among the classic family estates and old vines, dry, elegant and fruit-filled rosé shines. Try this 2019 – brimful of strawberry, gooseberry and pink grapefruit flavours.
Hear "Bordeaux" and you'll likely think of elegant reds, crisp whites or sweet Sauternes, but it's also home to a few seriously impressive rosé. Not that it's too much of a surprise. In a region famed for its Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, dry berry scented rosé really comes into its own. Our Bordeaux buyer has taken full advantage of his vast network of contacts to put this 2019 together. He tasted cuvées from the length and breadth of the region (which enjoyed an exceptional vintage in 2019). Then using winemaking skills perfected at top estates in Bordeaux and Rioja, he blended this beautiful, elegant pink. It's so refreshing, filled with intense strawberry, gooseberry and grapefruit. Delicious, classy and lovely for garden sipping.
"Top pinks like Comte des Clos, with all that beautiful berry flavour, make year-round treats!"
