We were the first in the country to bring in Bisol’s Prosecco Rose last year, a super tasty, refreshing sparkler from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. Now, fresh off a huge feature in The Wall Street Journal in which they were crowned as the top Prosecco Rose in a lineup of 14, I suspect what was once our little secret will explode. James Suckling also finally got around to tasting it and gave it 91 points. I’d rate it even higher. The 2020 Bisol Jeio Brut Prosecco Rosé is remarkable, and simply put, mouth-wateringly delicious. Inviting aromas of flowers and wild strawberries, with a complex mouthfeel that sings with citrus fruits and creaminess from the tiny crisp bubbles.

Not only is this easy to drink, it’s a serious wine as well. I can’t argue with Vinous’s 92 point assessment: Brilliant salmon skin. Highly perfumed, mineral- accented aromas of fresh berries, citrus and pit fruits and a suave floral note. Silky and focused on the mouth, offering juicy nectarine, strawberry and blood orange flavors that show fine clarity and tension. Deepens on a very long, lively finish, that leaves a repeating floral note behind.
This is classic Cotes de Provence Rosé from one of the oldest, most respected producers in the region. With over 800 years of winemaking, Peyrassol is best known for their iconic clay and limestone soils that produce mouthwatering Rhone blends. Their 2019 Reserve Des Templiers Rosé is wonderfully crisp and energetic. With a mix of cherries, mango, nectarines and lemon zest flavors and a piercing, dry backbone that ties it all together and gives it a lasting finish.
The 2020 CJ Rose is a light bright pink color. Aromas of high-toned red berry and flowers just fly from the glass and pick up a slight savory accent as the wine opens up. Juicy and fresh on the palate, offering wild strawberry and citrus rind flavors that deepen and spread out on the back half. A long, focused and bone-dry finish showcase amazing energy for what is sure to be a new happy hour go-to and Tuesday night Hall of Famer.

“The 2020 Chiaretto Nichesole mixes both savory and sweet, with freshly sliced peach and citrus zests giving way to smoky minerals and peppery herbs. This is noticeably ripe in style, but wonderfully balanced by bright acids, as notes of candied lime and apples yield to hints of brown spice. Energy remains high from start to finish as the Nichesole tapers off to hints of sour melon and inner florals. There is much to like about this wild and spry Chiaretto.”
The 2020 Crochet Sancerre Rosé is drawn from the high elevations of Janine and Teddy Chrochet’s Pinot Noir vines in the village of Bue. The conditions are perfect for delicious Sancerre Rose. Salmon-pink in color with a pretty nose featuring aromas of roses and cherry fruits. Slightly more acid this year, the wine as always has terrific fruit, juicy citrus and berries which lead to a racy, high-toned finish that screams for good food.
The fresh off the boat 2020 Effet Papillon Rose is made 100% from Grenache (as many of the best Southern French Roses are). Pale salmon in color, it boasts aromas of bright red fruits, orange rinds and a hint of lemon zest. It’s incredibly smooth and dry, making it a great food wine– but this Rose is serious with depth and complexity, making it worthy of enjoying on its own.
The winery made famous by Brad Pitt and Angelina is more famous in the wine world for their fleet of top Provencal Roses made by none other than superstar winemaker Marc Perrin, who has countless times turned the wine world on its head with his 100-point Chateauneuf du Papes at Chateau de Beaucastel. His 2020 Miraval Rose improves on an already impressive legacy with a beautiful salmon color, juicy notes of macerated cherries, strawberry currants, citrus and a lemon zest. It flashes that refreshing minerality that has become a Provence signature but crafted at 1100 ft above sea level, its crispness and vibrancy is unparalleled.
The 2020 Studio by Miraval Provence Rose is a vibrant blend of Rhone varietals that has a completely different mouthfeel and stylistic approach than its cousin and manages to crush it the same. From the winemakers at Beaucastel, it’s hardly a surprise. I think I enjoy this style more– and then there’s the price which is simply unbeatable. This one has a similar pale salmon color, but is a fresher, racier version of Rose that is not as fleshy and fruity and instead is more high-toned and refreshing as a result. There’s still great fruit here by way of wild strawberries, raspberry and rhubarb with a mineral streak on the finish that finishes smooth, dry and long.
I’ve compared winemaker Xavier Vignon to a magician before in the past, and I’ll do so again. He continues to come up with new and exciting wines that are unlike anything he’s done before. His latest trick, is a Rose cut off clay and gravelly soils located near Chateauneuf du Pape, towards Lirac. It’s got a great pale salmon color and a bouquet of flowers, raspberries, strawberries with a hint of spice. A perfect compliment to summer cuisine with a vibrancy and length to it that people will love.
