Top 10 Rosés Under $20 to Drink This Summer
Happy summertime everyone! I've held off on ranking wines thus far because I know everyone has their own palette and while I tend to favor drier rosés from the Provincial regions in France, you may favor sweet rosés from California! Based on the rosés that I've been drinking lately, here is my not-so-scientific ranking of what to line up for your next hot day at the pool:
10. Fleurs de Prairie, Côtes de Provence 2016: $14.99, very dry- not sweet, finishes like a Sauv Blanc, citrus notes.
9. Caves da Cerca, Fâmega Rosé 2016 : $9.50, Portueguese wine! Good acidity, hint of Apple, light strawberry color.
8. L'Ecole Grenache Rosé 2017 : $19.99, Washington rosé, refreshing, crisp, hints of citrus and berries.
7. Commanderie de la Bargemone, Coteaux d'Aix en Provence 2016 : $17.50, tastes of tropics, hint of nectarine or peach.
6. And Why am I Mr Pink, 2016 Rosé : $13.99, dry citrusy Washington rosé
5. Gerard Bertrand Côte des Roses Rosé, 2016 : $13.99, light and dry French rosé with a very impressive bottle.
4. Lily J. Rosé, rosé of Grenache 2017 : $16.99, Full bodied Washington rosé with strawberry notes
3. Balletto, Rosé of Pinot Noir 2016 : $18.00, Russian River Valley rosé, Refreshing, light, hints of strawberry and medium bodied.
2. Gérard Bertrand, Gris Blanc 2016 : $12.99, extremely light and crisp french rosé with hints of melon.
1. Villa Wolf, Pinot Noir Rosé 2016 : $12.99, German rose with a natural effervescence and red berries of raspberry and strawberry
