Abbesse de Loire Rosé 2017

As Master of Wine Jancis Robinson says, “there are times when only a rosé will do.” Here’s a perennial-favorite rosé, from our old friend, Loire expert Noël Bougrier.

The Bougrier family are an institution in the Loire Valley – and this mouthwatering, delicate blend of Gamay and Cabernet Franc (the Loire’s two great reds) shows how they’ve earned their top reputation. You’ll enjoy cool, wild-herb notes, with ripe summer berries on the nose and a vivid, red-fruited finish.

A delicious aperitif but, like all fine rosé, Abbesse is incredibly versatile with food too. Try light seafood dishes or grilled chicken kebabs.
