What's a good dry Rose?

883982J Freed

I always tend to crave Rose when the weather turns nice.


  • Costieres de Nimes (down by the Rhone) makes some nice roses as well (Chateau de Nage has a great one under $10)

    Malbec Roses from Cahors is another fun little area.  Pigmentum has a good one (again under $10)

    Rose Vinho Verde from Portugal is always refreshing

    But my all time favorite Rose spot is Sancerre  Try the Christian Salmon!

  • Bandol Rose and Tavel are the most famous, but they can be a little pricey ($20-30).  Almost any French Rose from the Provance area will be dry and quite refreshing.  My favorite is a dry Rose from a Michigan winery called Two Lads, but if you don't live in Michigan you probably won't be able to find it at your local shop.  It is more of a "light colored red" with a lot of body and taste.  Not a wimpy Rose!

  • Agreed that Bandol and Tavel make good dry Rose.  Also look to Spain, and Italy, and the US too!  There's definitely been a trend toward Dry Rose so there are plenty of choices.  Some of my favorites:


    Muga - Spain

    Chateau d'Esclans Whispering Angel - Provence

    Bonny Doon Vin Gris de Cigare  - California

    Dashe Cellars Vin Gris - California

    Francois Chidaine Tourain Val de Loire - France
