CHÂTEAU ROUBINE “La Rose” Rosé 2018

(Côtes de Provence, France) $24

These days, there’s a sea of pink out there, and worse, there’s a general assumption that all rosés are pretty much equal. Alas, they most definitely are not. So what does an exceptional rosé have that others don’t? I’d say depth of flavor and personality. Like Château Roubine’s fantastic spicy/fruity bone-dry rosé with its flickers of minerality, bursts of citrus, and swirls of strawberry. The owner of Château Roubine—Valérie Rousselle—is the founder of International Rosé Day which, by the way, is today (the fourth Friday of June). And while a charmingly attractive bottle is no guarantee of a charming wine inside, in this case, it is. You’ll be happy you tried it. (13% abv)
