the pink keeps pouring. a lot.

Not sick of rosé yet. Nope, not at all. At this point in the summer I’m half woman, half rosé. Let’s up that percentage with more of these recent faves:

  • Gérard Bertrand Gris Blanc: You’ve probably seen their Cote de Roses everywhere, but we had a ton of the Gris Blanc in the south of France last month (insane with grilled escargots, btw). It’s made with Grenache Gris and Grenache and is aged on fine lees for several weeks, which gives it a creamy texture. $15 here
  • Minuty Rose et Or: I normally don’t really push rosés over $20, simply because there are so many lovely refreshing ones for less. But this one is complex and worth the extra money, especially when you learn they’re the only producer in Provence who still picks grapes completely by hand. This rosé has a spritz of orange blossom, fleshy white peach and yellow apple, and flavor-swirls all around your mouth like a roller coaster. $38 here
  • Loimer: Really love this Zweigelt-based rosé from Austria, with its herbal red plum notes. $18 here
  • Leyda: Great winery in the Leyda Valley in Chile (I’ve been, and it was actually chilly) which makes great Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. The rosé is made from the Pinot of course, and has ripe strawberry and raspberry flavors. $17.50 here
