I've done a LOT (really a lot...) of rosé tasting this summer so I thought I'd share a round up of my top 5 favorites before the season ends. I've found that most of my favorites are under $20/bottle - and I've intentionally left out the "obvious" options like Whispering Angel to hopefully give you a few new ones to look for.
In no particular order:
1. Bordeaux Rosé: A new favorite, this rosé is made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Super light, dry, delicious! $14-16/bottle
2. Theirry Vernon Cave de la Bouquette Sancerre Rose: OMG this one is good. A little pricey, but this bad boy is a SANCERRE ROSÉ. Every bit as good as you imagine. $23/bottle
3. Coté de Más Rosé Aurore: This has replaced Jolie Folle as my "best bang for your buck" rosé - same liter size bottle (score!) and low price point and super easy to drink. This is my go-to bottle to bring to parties. $8-$10/bottle
4. Fleur de Mer Cotes de Provence: This is my favorite mid-price rosé - very light, fruity but dry. The bottle is also gorgeous so I tend to bring this to friend's homes for dinner with a a few inches of striped ribbon around the neck. $16-18/bottle
5. MiMi en Provence Grande Reserve: Not going to lie, I love the glass cork and the gorgeous pale pink of this one! A great buy for when I feel like making frosé or dropping in frozen watermelon. $12-14/bottle
**it should go without saying that Jolie Folle is still my very favorite (sure, the anchor label helps ;) but I cannot find it around here for the life of me and my local wine store said it's discontinued (?!!!). Let me know if you hear otherwise and I will resume the hunt!
Do you have any new favorites this year? I'd love to add your suggestions to my list if you leave them in the comments below!
