Carte Noire Les Maîtres Vignerons De Saint-Tropez Rosé 2009
A.C., Côtes De Provence, France
Vintages Wine Panel: You don’t have to be sitting on a terrace overlooking the Mediterranean to be enjoying this fresh, crisp, and flavourful Provence rosé. In fact, it doesn’t even have to be really hot outside because rosés are for more than just sipping during the summer. With aromas of rosehip, cherry, raspberry and red pepper, this is a great year-round meal-starter. My note: Lovely and light: like fresh washed laundry drying in a summer breeze. Makes you happy and filled with peace. Aromas of field strawberries. Love it! Rosé food pairings: ratatouille, tomato-and-herb-based fish, chicken dishes, baked ham. Alcohol: 13.5%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Best Value Rosé  Price: $13.95 Score: 88/100

Bright pink, fresh, bursting with fruit and balanced by vibrant acidity, this stylish dry wine offers crowd-pleasing refreshment. My note: Light, carefree and happy.

Argiolas Serra Lori Rosé 2010
I.G.T., Isole Dei Nuraghi, Sardinia, Italy
Vintages Wine Panel: Medium rose-petal red in the glass with aromas of strawberry, grapefruit, spice, red pepper jelly and a lovely lifted floral note. The palate is dry, medium bodied and fruity, with savoury red pepper really shining through on the way to a tasty medium-long finish. This will delight as a sipper, before or after dinner. My note : Such a pretty nose of roses and red jelly, then here comes the acidic attack: nice and refreshing! Light and juicy, just what you want from rose. Rosé food pairings: warm chicken salads, pasta in a rosé sauce. Alcohol: 13.5%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2011‐2012  Price: $13.95 Score: 87/100
