Rosé wines hold so many admirable qualities – a pretty color, versatility, and a promise of a perfect summer. Even wines made in a sweeter lollipop fashion (not my favorite) bring back tender memories of carefree times and girly giggles.
When I think of rosé, two places immediately spring to my mind: the cote d’azure, blue skies and lavender fields of Provence, and majestic chateaux along the Loire river in Anjou. Yet, delicious rosés are now made everywhere: from Australia to Eastern Europe and to the US, in a wide variety of styles and colors.
But is there such a thing as a perfect rosé region? If yes, what sets it apart from other places?
