Provence rosé is now so popular that the Provence style has become the gold-standard for rosé production all around the world. If its not pale and shimmering with that chiselled silvery edge, then the world doesn't want it. Leading the way has been the defining Province producer of the past decade, Chateau d'Esclans, and it's runaway bullet train brand - Whispering Angel. So popular in Long Island, New York has Whispering Angel become that locals refer to it as Hamptons Water.
Warm weather and a hard-earned thirst means that a single bottle of rosé never goes far. So do yourself a favour, grab it by the 6-pack, and never go without a chilled rosé in the fridge.
Alongside Whispering Angel, we have regular Philglas favourites Domaine d'ille Porquerolles, a superb organic producer Chateau les Valentines, a superb pair of value rosés from the Languedoc from Abbotts & Delaunay and Domaine de Metairie, and the stunning interloper from a resurgent Greece, La Tour Melas Idylle rosé.
Oh and while Domaines Ott have been slow to release this year, we are taking pre-orders and expect this will be ready for collection around mid-June.
