The Wine Society has one of the UK’s most vibrant wine ranges at all price levels and in all styles.
If you’re hopping up and down waiting for warm weather, or just like to drink pink come rain or shine, two rosé recommendations from the current Wine Society spring / summer 2013 list are:
Corse Calvi Clos Columbu, £11.95, 12.5%. Sangiovese lovers long for more pink versions. This is more in the Provence style, colour and weight wise. Minerally with substance, it is a smart lunch wine or sophisticated aperitif. Enjoy with warm goats’ cheese salad or retro-tastic Quiche Lorraine.
Domain Félines-Jourdan Rosé, £5.50, 13%. We all know £10 is the new £5 in wine, but sometimes you’re just brassic. As good as wine gets at this price, the Languedoc is well known for excellent value. The more Cinsault in the blend, the more elegant the rosé. Perfect with a pile of garlicky prawns.
