The CountryClubuk Wine Cellar for the South of France includes of course Provençe, which contains some of the oldest vineyards in France. Now that 'pink' wine has become more highly prized, Provençe wants to show the world what it can do, producing delightful, typically ultra-pale pink wines, with good balance and often surprising firmness of flavour. Producers aim at mineral, terroir-driven qualities, and here is our Tasting Panel's shortlist of wines from the best chateaux with a serious reputation for rosé.
