Rosé goes beau­ti­fully with a sun­set – in more ways than one , says Neil Bing­ham of Bea­cons­field Wine Cel­lars

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FOOD AND DRINK -

I am hop­ing that the wind will have dropped and the tem­per­a­ture will have risen and that we can draw the cork of a well chilled bot­tle of rosé wine now.

The one that I am think­ing of is Chateau L’Aumer­ade 2014 from Provence.

This lovely wine comes off a sin­gle es­tate of four hun­dred acres which has be­longed to the same fam­ily for many years.

The soil in Provence is red, very rich qual­ity and full of min­er­als and the rosé wine from the area is, con­se­quently, very full of flavours

The bou­quet of the wine is a heav­enly com­bi­na­tion of straw­berry and or­ange, the flavour is a mix­ture of grapefruit, lemon and straw­berry with a lovely lin­ger­ing crisp dry fin­ish.

This rosé would com­pli­ment any­thing light and sum­mery even a lovely sun­set.
