The year 2015 has shaped up to be a fantastic vintage for wines, especially in Europe–all the more reason to be thrilled about the recent crop of brand-new rosés hitting the shelves. Rosé captures a fresh immediacy that no other style of wine seems to match. And when it comes to summer, Provençal rosés evoke the season like no other: delicate, bone-dry, thirst-slaking, and with just a tinge of red fruit. Plus, many of these southern French rosés are in a favorite shade—the undeniably attractive pale salmon-hued pink. Surprisingly versatile, the rosés of Provence make more-than-capable apéritifs and pair with an astonishing array of foods. In fact, the French believe that one can drink a rosé with any meal whatsoever.
