2023 Bandol Rosé, Domaine du Gros' Noré Dry | Rosé | Still

This rosé is one of the secret gems of our list. Pale, dry, and quintessentially Provençal at first, it opens up in the glass revealing layers of complexity that take it far beyond your average rosé. It has beautifully pithy grapefruit, orange blossom, and sweet red berry notes, with lovely sea-salty freshness on the palate. Unlike many simpler rosés, whose enjoyment lies exclusively in their fruitiness, this wine has the structure and depth to age with grace. Bandol is a small appellation, well-known for producing that rare beast: ageworthy and truly gastronomic rosés. Its neighbour Domaine Tempier put these rosés on the fine wine map. We firmly believe that Gros' Noré is every bit as thrilling, yet remains pleasingly under-the-radar. If you hold this wine for a couple of years, you'll discover just what this wine can do.

2023 Magali Rosé, Figuière, Côtes de Provence Dry | Rosé | Still

Magali Combard’s wines from Figuière have quickly become a go-to on our list. Her signature cuvée is so well balanced and refreshing, you’ll be reaching for another glass in no time. It is pale salmon pink, and has a beautifully expressive nose, with notes of fresh citrus, strawberries, and dried herbs. The palate is silky smooth, with a fresh pink grapefruit energy. It is the perfect Provençal rosé, and a brilliant price.

2022 Break-a-Leg Rosé, Lukas van Loggerenberg Dry | Rosé | Still | 11.5%

This is a blend of 17% Grenache from the Polkadraai, with the balance coming from one of the closest Cinsault vineyards to the ocean, in Stellenbosch. The resulting wine is savoury, saline, and totally delicious. This is South Africa’s best rosé, and the 2022 is a real winner.

Ready: 2023 - 2033
2022 Sancerre Rosé La Noue, Claude Riffault Dry | Red | Still | 14%

Stéphane Riffault, one of Sancerre's most talented winemakers with demand to match, makes rosé in only tiny amounts. We are thrilled to have a small parcel of the delicious 2022. Sancerre rosé is made from 100% Pinot Noir and this iteration is vinous and long, with a mineral backbone, as if chiselled from Sancerre's limestone soils, and a juiciness from the sunny conditions of the year. Unlike Stéphane's whites which demand a little ageing, this is ready to drink already, though do not underestimate its ability to age.

Ready: 2023 - 2028
2022 Sancerre Rosé, Vincent Pinard Dry | White | Still | 13.5%

This Sancerre Rosé is made in the village of Bué by brothers Clément and Florent Pinard, who know a thing or two about Pinot Noir. It's fresh and fruity, but with serious structure underneath making it a great accompaniment with food. It's a real all-rounder of a rosé, and easily one of the best in the appellation.

2018 Rosé Brut, Rathfinny, Sussex Dry | Rosé | Sparkling | 12%

Just the fourth vintage of rosé from Rathfinny, this is the finest example of the style that we’ve tasted from the UK. Pale in colour, there’s notes of Seville oranges and plenty of floral notes. This has structure and vibrancy, and there’s a delicious toasty complexity at play on the palate. Wonderfully balanced, and very long: not to be missed.

Ready: 2023 - 2033
N/V Brut Rosé, Billecart-Salmon Dry | Rosé | Sparkling | 12%

This must be the most reliably brilliant N/V rosé champagne out there. Delicate onion skin pink, with savoury notes and a gentle but sophisticated lift of red fruits on the nose. The palate is exceptionally smooth, with creamy bubbles and a long, elegant finish.

N/V Rosé de Meunier, Laherte Frères (base vintage 2020) (disgorged January 2023) Dry | Rosé | Sparkling

Aurélien Laherte wanted to make a rosé that strikes the balance between the structure of a saignée rosé and the freshness of an assemblage (blended) rosé, and so he used both methods here. It results in a rosé Champagne that is both fresh and racy, and also textural, expressive and dry. It's a versatile Champagne, which pops with notes of fresh cranberries, delicate raspberries, and pepper.

Ready: 2024 - 2029
N/V Grains de Celles Rosé Extra Brut, Pierre Gerbais (2019 base vintage) Dry | Rosé | Sparkling | 12.5%

This has a similar grape variety make-up to the blanc version, with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc in the blend. Indeed, it's made from the same base as the Grains des Celles, with a dash of Coteaux Champenois (red wine) added for colour.

Ready: 2024 - 2030
2019 Rosé de Saignée, Everflyht, Sussex Dry | Rosé | Sparkling | 12.5%

The first single estate sparkling wine to be produced at Everflyht, the Rosé de Saignée 2019 is a blend of hand-picked Pinot Noir and Meunier. The Saignée method of rosé production is more complicated than adding red wine into the blend. Instead it extracts colour from a short period of skin contact, in this instance, just 12 hours was enough to get the colour and richness of fruit. It is packed full of summer fruits and a wonderful creamy and fresh brioche note on the nose. The palate is fruit driven with notes of ripe red cherry, sweet wild strawberry and a soft backbone of cream. A light acidity is balanced with a rounded mouthfeel that gives the wine weight and an elegant finish. Fantastic food wine, that you shouldn't be afraid to decant.

Ready: 2023 - 2030
2017 Rosé Brut, Rathfinny, Sussex Dry | Rosé | Sparkling

The third vintage of Rathfinny’s sparkling rosé has a pretty coral hue and an energetic nose of cranberry and red apple. The palate is full of life with concentrated notes of pink grapefruit and brioche. Juicy acidity gives this wine great length and vibrancy. Perfect for a summer's day!

Ready: 2023 - 2035

A blend of Chardonnay & Pinot Noir, from the Languedoc-Roussillon, with the alcohol removed. This is crunchy and juicy, with nice vibrancy, and notes of crunchy apples and lots of citrus fruit on the finish. There’s good length here: surprisingly delicious.

Bin-end sale: case price down from £76.50 to £70 per 6 in bond.
If this doesn't transport you to the south of France, nothing will. It’s an exciting new venture from the team at Châteaux Rauzan-Ségla and Canon in Bordeaux, owned by Chanel. It’s one of just two domaines on the staggeringly beautiful, and biodiversity unique, Porquerolles Island, just off the Provence coast.

Bin-end sale: case price down from £72 to £65 per 6 in bond.
Château La Mascaronne in the picturesque village of Luc de Provence was snapped up in 2020 by Michel Reybier, owner of Château Cos d`Estournel, and he has set the bar sky high with his debut vintage. This organic, dry, delicate, complex and delicious rosé is quite literally Provence in a glass. It is exquisitely balanced and refined, and perhaps the most understated and elegant rosé on our list.
