The summer is the perfect season for a rosé. This wine is simply sun, warm breezes and long evenings captured in a bottle. Selecting a rosé from the Côtes de Provence gives you a great deal of choice, because half of all French rosé comes from the region and 80% of all wine produced in Provence is rosé.
Overall, rosé from the Côtes de Provence tend to be fruity and dry – like most summer wines they are best drunk young. Finding the right wine for you is slightly a matter of hunting around for something that suits your palette as the wines can vary greatly according to the terroir, climate and grape (which could be grenache, syrah, cabernet sauvignon, carignan or mourvedre).
