Rosé wines
Rosé wines
Rosé is a much underrated style of wine, due mainly to the fairly dire, mass-produced offerings to be had from many of the large chains and supermarkets. Much better to stick with the smaller producers, who lavish much more care on the wines they produce.

Drink Now or to 2021

Deeper in colour and fuller in body and texture than the Gris (above), this has a nose of raspberry, strawberry and cream, with subtle floral notes and even hints of apple and peach. The palate is quite full and almost rich, with redcurrand and berry flavours, a hint of peppery spice and a quite creamy texture, with a modicum of grape skin tannin. It finishes long and spicy. Top class rosé and a very good food wine. Serve well chilled.

This is top-notch rosé - a vin de pressurage (meaning the grapes are used only for this wine, rather than the more common by-product of the red winemaking process). A delightful, salmon pink/orange colour, with a nose of summer red berry fruits, peach and melon, with hints of spring flowers. Lively and refreshing to drink, with bags of fresh red berry and white tree fruits, gentle spiciness, juicy orange and zesty lime. With a sweet and sour red fruit finish, this is a fairly serious rosé, with none of the bitterness often found in many other Languedoc rosés. Organic.

Price:  £12.25 (Including: VAT at 20%)


É & F Jourdan Aramon Vieilles Vignes Rosé 2017 Vin de France
E & F Jourdan Aramon Rose 2017

Region Sommières, in eastern Languedoc
Colour/Style Dry rosé, medium bodied, aged in vat
Grapes 100% old-vine Aramon
Alcohol (a.b.v)
Food Grilled vegetables, cold cuts, salads, pizza
Next day
Still good
Drink Now or over the next 2 or 3 years
A bright, pale to mid-pink colour. A riot of raspberries, strawberries and cream on the nose, quite floral too, with hints of garrigue herbs (oregano, rosemary, fennel). The palate is beautifully smooth and gently creamy, with flavours of red berry and currant fruits and white peach, offset by a touch of granny smith apple tartness, along with gentle spice and herb notes, a hint of tannin and really juicy acidity. This is serious rosé, to match the best Provence has to offer, with a lingering sweet-sour finish. Cracking stuff, and great to drink now, or to age for a year or two.

Price:  £12.79 (Including: VAT at 20%)
