Domaine de Petit Chaumont Gris de Gris 2016

I’ve been looking for ages for a reasonably priced, yet tasty rosé, and this one from organically farmed vineyards in the Camargue region of southern France ticks all the boxes. A blend of Grenache Gris and Grenache Noir, it has an attractive pale salmon colour and aromas and flavours of white peaches and ripe pears. It’s great as an aperitif or with a variety of fish or chicken dishes as well as spicy Indian or Asian food (£10.80 a bottle).


Château Roubine 2016

Provençal rosés are much in vogue at the moment, and many can be short on depth and flavour. Desite its pale, blush pink colour, this lovely blend of the local Tibouren grape plus Cinsault, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Cabernet is bursting with intense aromas and flavours reminiscent of fraises des bois and ripe red fruits. It comes from prime organic vineyards in the heart of Province, and has enough structure to enhance most menus from a light salade Niçoise with grilled tuna to hearty Tuscan porchetta (£17.35 a bottle).
