“Rosé is a wine that entertains long before it even passes your lips. Its comely colors have in fact been likened to sunset in a glass. With better bottles, its bouquet will live up to its look, refreshing you with juicy red fruits … joined sometimes by floral essences, citrus fruits, or perhaps a whiff of minerals.
And then there is the taste: not the sucrose serum of a bad white Zinfandel, but a dry, clean thirst-slaker with the body of a light red and the crispness of a white. … To achieve rosé nirvana, follow my ‘Rosé Rule of P': serve it with anything pink–lobster, shrimp, ham, pork–or anything Provencal–such as bouillabaisse, salade Nicoise, or grilled sardines.” – Mark Oldman, Oldman’s Brave New World of Wine (Norton, 2010)
