Overview Our answer to the proverbial what- would-you-want-with-you-on-a- desert-island question just might be a good French rosé. With more oomph than your average white, but not the heaviness of your average red, they’re just about right for prolonged periods of imbibing in the sun. And the color is a delight on its own: the pale salmon pink of a good rosé looks almost as refreshing as it tastes.

Nose A hint of mashed strawberry is a refreshing whiff, and there’s an aroma of flowers that is lovely and not cloying.

Mouth Big savory aromas don’t tread lightly, but you won’t mind that. A decent burst of acid counterbalances nicely the bright, fresh, young fruit aromas. Now where’s our beach house already?
