Anyone who follows this column even sporadically knows I’m an unrepentant fan of Rosé wines. I love them for their overall lightness and versatility. For a sunny taste of southern France, I recommend trying the 2014 Whispering Angel ($18.99) from Caves D’Esclans Sacha Lichine in Côtes de Provence. It’s a peachy-salmon-colored Rosé with notes of sweet strawberry, raspberry and cherry, yet it’s completely dry with a solid acidity and a long, clean finish.
Here’s to tasting more wine in 2016! PJH
