The crisp pink wine known and loved as rosé has won the world over by oc­cu­py­ing the mid­dle ground be­tween red and white vino and be­ing the drink of choice for pa­tio sea­son. The ap­peal is only grow­ing, ex­plains Shari Fan­son, a con­sul­tant for the Liquor Con­trol Board of On­tario, who has no­ticed gen­tle­men com­ing in for “brosé.” A rosé by any other name will smell as sweet, in­deed. Here, Fan­son breaks down three rosé styles, which we paired with run­way- in­spired lip colours to wear while drink­ing them. — Fan­son’s favourite sparkling rosé re­minds her of a rich cherry pie; the bub­bles bring out rasp­berry and rhubarb flavours. Cu­vée Catharine is made in the tra­di­tional method, mean­ing it has the creamy brioche char­ac­ter­is­tic from au­tol­y­sis, the break­ing down of yeast cells dur­ing the sec­ond phase of fer­men­ta­tion in the bot­tle, some­thing that dis­tin­guishes finer wines.

CU­VÉE CATHARINE ROSÉ BRUT VQA, $30, WHERE LIQUOR IS SOLD “When you see some­thing that’s a brighter hue, you can as­sume that it’s prob­a­bly go­ing to be riper, with fruit char­ac­ter­is­tics,” Fan­son says. “It will be a lit­tle bit fuller in weight as well be­cause it re­quired a lit­tle more grape skin con­tact to cre­ate that colour.” Tast­ing notes for these wines run the gamut from straw­berry and rasp­berry to black­berry, black­cur­rant and even tomato leaf. They pair well with richer foods, like a burger or brisket. KJAER WEIS LIP TINT IN SWEET­NESS, $ 67, THEDETOXMARKET. CA. MALIVOIRE LA­DY­BUG ROSÉ, $17, WHERE LIQUOR IS SOLD Salmon pink wines gen­er­ally come from Provence and pro­vide watermelon and rose petal aro­mas. “They’re softer, a lit­tle more el­e­gant and lighter,” Fan­son ex­plains. She rec­om­mends pair­ing them with light bites—but has one ex­cep­tion: fried chicken. MUD COS­MET­ICS LIP­STICK IN SANDY BEACH, $ 19, SEARS.CA.
