New and exclusive - Organic rosé from Provence - Our top pick from hundreds tasted!

If you are on the dancefloor and a classic tune come on, I doubt if you wonder what grade the keyboard player achieved in piano or if the drummer attended Juilliard. The point I’m torturing here is that, like dancing, drinking rosé is a pleasure to be enjoyed ‘in the moment’, a convivial, ephemeral pleasure that isn’t enhanced by knowing the prevailing wind direction in the vineyard or the winemaker’s thoughts on malolactic fermentation. Rosé has a singular brief: to perk up your tastebuds. So, you’ll be relieved to hear that I’m not going to write chapter and verse about this wine’s qualifications, because I know your time would be better spent enjoying it than reading about it. 

Behind the scenes, we whittled our selection down from over 300 others, but I’m not going to bore you about that. Nor do you need to know that Domaine Pinchinat are fully organic and renounce the use of pesticides and insecticides or that we thought it was finer than the trendsetters, Whispering Angel and Miraval, and all the other fancypants rosés we tasted. Telling you any of this extraneous detail would be like tapping you on the shoulder while you're dancing to nerdily let you know that the beat of the tune you are listening to has its origins in African polyrhythmic syncopation. 

All that needs to be said is that it is delicate and delicious and it comes from a site in Provence, roughly halfway between Aix and St Tropez. The colour is the perfect Provençal prawn-shell pink. It’s dry, silky, softly evocative of strawberries, fiendishly moreish and that is it. Everything else is propaganda. Oh, and it’s exclusive to us, so we buy it direct from the winery, eliminating any middlemen, which keeps the price nice and low for a premium Provençal rosé. 14% alc. Drink now-2018.
