Provence is well known for delicate pinks, but Fronton in southwest France also excels with ravishing rosés. This 2020 is a beautiful Négrette pink, a speciality grape of the region, from US winemaker Nicole McPheeters. Bright and lemony crisp.

Beyond the Label
Bright and citrusy with juicy red berries, hint of violets
Very lemony with bright red berries and floral notes
Continue southwest from Bordeaux, past Toulouse and you reach Fronton, an ancient wine region many have forgotten. It produces a range of truly authentic southern French wines, some using little known native grapes like Négrette. This variety is susceptible to mildew, so it doesn't travel well and is grown hardly anywhere else in France. Shame as its red wines are delightfully silky and gulpable and its rosés, pure delight. Taste here lots of crunchy redcurrant fruit and lemony freshness. It's made by the US born winemaker Nicole McPheeters who, despite her youth, has put in plenty of vintages all over the world. Chill down a bottle and enjoy as a refreshing glass solo or with tofu, spinach and noodles, seafood or marinaded chicken kebabs.
"Southwest France has so many exciting and delicious wines that rarely get beyond the locals!"
