The Evolution of Rosé – Now, a Year-Round Pleasure

Rosé was once thought of as an easy to drink option when searching the aisles for those who weren’t necessarily wine drinkers. Once sweet, inexpensive, and lacking flavor, Contributor Tom Hyland wrote for Forbes magazine that those characteristics are now thankfully no longer the case. This article highlights the expertise of French and Californian wineries in their ability to make great, dry rosés available everywhere from supermarkets to high-end wine lists.

“… [A] dry rosé with notable structure and delicious fruit flavors of strawberry and cherry; the lengthy finish is dry and very well balanced.” Hyland describes E. Guigal Tavel as one of the finest and most complex rosés made today. Its ability to drink for up to five years is another highlighted feature of this impeccably made wine.  Another French recommendation by Hyland is E. Guigal Cotes du Rhone Rosé 2022 which he describes as, “Bright, deep orange, bright aromas of strawberry, orange zest and pear. Medium-bodied, with very good acidity, and a clean, flavorful, slightly tart finish.” With rosé’s ability to perfectly pair with a wide variety of cuisines, these options offer some of the best quality of French roses made by a top producer.
