The Thirot-Fournier family farms 10 hectares split between Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot on the clay-limestone slopes of the Sancerre village of Bué. Christian Thirot-Fournier, along with his wife and daughter, tend roughly 10 hectares of vines. This is a classic, minerally-laden expression with flinty, floral notes on the nose and a zesty, fruity palate. It’s an electric bottle of wine that delivers in a big way. A star in a vintage that will be very light on Sancerre Rose.
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.

A sexy package with a great label leads you off before you’re swooned by a mix of citrus, white peach, and turkish apricots. On the palate, you’re hit with a refreshing sweet and sour combination with incredibly tiny, salty bubbles. This one is a beauty – the definition of a crowd pleaser. Vinous got a hold of it and gave it their highest rating for the category of the vintage, a 91-point score for a wine they deemed, “incredibly pretty and highly likable”. This is going to be the go-to for Melissa this year, I can already tell.
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. The brand new ‘Cuvee des Commandeurs’ Rose is electric– super crisp and refreshing with a mix of cherries, mango, nectarines and lemon zest flavors. The best part here is the piercing, dry backbone that ties it all together and gives it a lasting finish.
Every vintage, if you can get your hands on this one, it’s one of the best Roses hands down in Provence. Unfortunately, we couldn’t in 2020 due to tariffs, and only managed 10 cases all of last year. But finally, I got my hands on 168 bottles and it’s fantastic. Château Revelette is an incredible property set at a crazy elevation north of Mount Saint Victoire in the heart of Provence. Their new release is super bright and focused, delivering high-toned flavors of wild strawberry, ripe peach and melon with plenty of extraction and length. It’s a traditional Provencal blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault.

This is an absolutely killer Sparkling Lambrusco Rose that doesn’t taste like what you might expect. It’s got a gorgeous pink hue with a fruity and floral nose, but it doesn’t give off the herbal notes that Lambrusco sometimes does. Instead, it’s a lovely draw expression with fresh, juicy red fruits with a hint of cintrus and minerality. The bubbles are tiny and pure and add a refreshing layer to this fun little number. It comes in a great bottle and whats inside is fantastic. Mom or dad or anybody else will love it.
If you’re looking for one of my most sincere recommendations of the year, heed this: this is the Rose to have of all the ones I’ve tried so far. The newly released 2021 Effet Papillon Rose is off the charts. Made 100% from Grenache (as many of the best Southern French Roses are, this is salmon in color. It boasts aromas of bright red and stone 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 2020 Nerello Mascalese Rosé di Adele keeps you at the edge of the glass with a delicate yet stunning bouquet of ripe peach laced with candied ginger and a dusting of sweet spice. Its textures are fleshy, yet the expression is lifted and spry, with a vivid display of freshly sliced pear, while drenched in minerals and motivated by lively acidity. There’s a crunchy feel through the finale, as the palate reverberates with residual tension…”

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 newly released 2021 Miraval Rose shines 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.
