Gerard Bertrand Côte des Roses Rosé 2017
A soft, pale, brilliant pink with bluish tints developing over time towards more orangey nuances. The bouquet releases aromas of summer fruits, cassis and redcurrant. Floral notes of rose along with hints of grapefruit complete the picture. The finish is fresh, offering notes of candy. On the palate the impression is fresh and full, with great aromatic persistence and balance. Pairings: This Languedoc is ideal at 10°C as an aperitif or with shellfish and subtly spiced dishes.
Kim Crawford Pansy! Rose 2015The first thing that strikes you about this rosé is its deep, vibrant burnt orange colour, a pretty good indication that it's made from pinot noir. And it's not just the colour that's distinctive. Unlike most rosés, which tend to be fairly light and lively, this is robust in texture and weight. The flavours are concentrated, layered, and well defined, the acidity is clean and fresh, and there's a light tannic dryness. This is a rosé that walks down a different path and it's delicious.

Amplifying its fresh, clean acidity and striking length is a burst of succulent Ruby grapefruit that carries the wonderful ensemble to a pleasant, lasting finish.
