Bijou Terre de Providence Rosé
This is a French rosé without the hefty price tag. And it’s made in Provence!

The palate is light and crisp, rolling over the tongue with frivolity, and ending on a smooth finish. Just like all the rosé wines featured on this list, this drop is a perfect aperitif. But, if you must pair it, we recommend a simple poultry dish that’s not too overdone. A must try in 2023!
When one thinks of great rosé, our minds don’t usually travel to Spain. But please reconsider! Spain is a temperate wine region, with the ability to produce amazing wine of any colour. And the best is the Born Rosé, made with native tempranillo and grenache grapes in the coastal city of Barcelona. Expect aromas of cherry, strawberry and redcurrant that flow through to the palate sharing a juicy, mouth-watering finish. Best served chilled and on its own.

Fruity, citrusy, sparkling and refreshing; this is a top-rated rosé wine to try in 2023!
Gérard Bertrand Côte des Roses Rosé
Gérard Bertrand’s Côte des Roses Rosé shares a blushing pink colour in a rather quirky bottle. It is made in the coastal region Languedoc-Roussillon and captures the divinity of the land.

It is light-bodied, making it a wonderful starter to your evening, or best matched with light foods such as oysters.
