Wines each week: Three southern French rosés


From Languedoc Roussillon

Le Versant Grenache Rose Pays d’Oc 2015 

Trustworthy Foncalieu co-operative in the Languedoc is behind this phenomenal, red fruit flavoured, fullsome rosé, proof that savoury Grenache Noir is an excellent grape for ‘pinks’ like a solo act. For tomato-based tapas and pasta dishes or picnic propagates. £9.00, The Key Cellar £10.64, kingdom

From the Rhône valley

E. Guigal Cotes du Rhône Rose 2014

Moving eastwards towards the Rh?ne valley and in the equally reliable Guigal stable, the Grenache here’s given added spiciness and complexity with Cinsault and Syrah. The red fruit flavours are more dominant and there’s a pleasant residual finish, which makes it full bodied enough for barbecued fish or white-colored meat. £10.50, kingdom £11.95, kingdom

From Provence

Le Grand Cros Domaine Rose 2015

Finally, to Provence, the house of most of the best rosés as well as an exceptional blend where spicy Cinsault dominates. An attractive orange-pink, aromatic with citrus aromas and scrumptious mouth-filling flavours of blueberries, tangerines and herbal treatments. The main one for any full-on bouillabaisse, within the garden, on the warm night.. £10.95,
