A selection of wines for LA VIE EN ROSE

Most of us think that rose wines are a recent development, yet in fact they are the world’s oldest wines. Sounds strange? It does. The reason is that our ancestors did not like harsh and tannic red wines but did not know how to make them more palatable (as we know now). So they quickly separated the juice from the grapes before fermenting it. Thus was born, over 6.000 years ago, the (rose) wine most of our ancestors drank daily.

Rose wines which, until some time ago, made up only a small part of the total wine production, have become very popular during the last 10 ~ 15 years. In Japan consumption increased by 50 % since 2009. In France the consumption of rose wines has recently exceeded the consumption of white wines.

For long, until quite recently, rose wines were considered “Summer Wines”. A wine one would drink when the weather was hot and sunny. This too has changed. What some considered a fad has become a choice throughout the year. And, there are good reasons for that. Rose wines go very well with many dishes for which one would have chosen in the past either a red wine or a white wine. Now it is easy to be right both ways. Rose wines in particular go well with more delicate and lighter food, which is also a trend. They go well as an aperitif too which makes it easy to keep it for the whole meal.

Try a rose wine with your next (delicious) meal, you will be surprised how much you like it.

The colour is an orange-pink. Aromas of fresh ripe fruit such peach, pear and strawberry appear. The attack is smooth, one can sense the rich, ripe fruit, even a certain sweetness. Acidity is fresh but moderate. There is a plesant balance of flavours, the fragrance of fresh acidity. Peach and strawberry mingle and stay on in the aftertaste.
