Are you a person who stops drinking red wine in the summer? No. What about white wine in winter? Probably not. What about rosé? I suspect so. The question is why? Rosé is such a great wine for this time of year. Turkey, canapes, smoked salmon, leftovers? All classic matches for light, fresh pinks.
Check out our top picks below.
We have developed a delicious rosé "Ode to Joy" produced at Chateau Vignelaure with a label from a painting by top Irish artist Kathryn Callaghan. Organically produced from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah, its salmon coloured with tones of raspberry, redcurrant, and yellow peach flavours. Let's hope that we can now look forward, celebrating hope and better times ahead.
All profits from sales this year will go towards helping those less fortunate.
The first project, Rainbow Lights, is due to launch and will help assist, celebrate, and uplift young people who are living with huge challenges both mental and physical allowing them to reengage and have fun.
This rosé Champagne is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir 20% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay. The rosé colour comes from adding red Champagne wine to the reserve cuvee and through the delicate blending, an intense and fruity bouquet is evident with ample mouth feel and great finish.
The production secrets and the vinification method of this cuvee go back to the origins of the House of Billecart-Salmon and have been handed down for seven generations.
The Brut Rosé is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir vinified as red wine, pale and bright pink colour is adorned with warm glints of gold and delicate slowly rising bubbles. Its special method of vinification gives this cuvee a light, elegant flavour, followed by a fresh finish with a taste of raspberry.
This rosé champagne is an ideal partner as an aperitif and can also accompay a dish of wild salmon or sushi. For dessert, it will add a sublime touch to red fruit flavours.
