Rosé: the official wine of spring. Naturally, countless bottles of the absolute freshest rosés are filling the shelves, ready to be whisked away to your next rooftop party, al fresco brunch, or backyard gathering. But what boggles the mind is the sheer diversity and ageability of these pink sensations.
Rosé is produced all over the world: the lightly-fizzy Txakolina rosé of Spain, the zesty Cabernet Franc rosés of France, the tannic Nebbiolo rosés of Italy, and the juicy rosé blends of the United States, to name just a few. And who would have thought that rosés had staying power? The sturdy rosé wines of southern France—namely Provence, Tavel, and Bandol—can age for decades and develop amazingly complex flavors and aromas.
