In the last few years, the sale of rosé wines of Bordeaux have known a huge increase. It is not surprising as the color of rosé wines are paler than they used to be (pale and trendy salmon) and they usually come in a fancy stylish bottle. Besides, the wines are of excellent quality with aromas of small red fruits, berries, strawberries, etc. They often come from top domains, known for their red wines (e.g. Dom de Chevalier from Pessac Léognan) that produces a very beautiful, intense and tasty rosé wine.
For a long time, wines from the south-west (of Bordeaux) have stayed in the shadow of the Bordeaux wines. It is, nevertheless, a very expanded region along rivers and each appellation has its own style. Wines from Bergerac are now very popular and Buzet is a region that produces very qualitative wines. The advantage is that the rosé wines (all wines in general) are offered at very good prices and can compete with these of Bordeaux. The rosés from Bergerac and Buzet are very fruity, fresh and easy to drink.

Côtes de Provence
Provence is synonymous with delicious rosé wines, which are more popular than their red and white wines. With more than 3000 hours of sun a year (because of its situation sun, sea and holiday) it always made rosé wines to serve with Provencal dishes. 40% of the national rosé production comes from this region. In recent years, it has been mostly very pale-colored rosés with plenty of fruit and a typical spicy touch (because of the herbs that grow near the vines ‘the Garrigue’). This typical spicy touch can only be found here. Also the ‘Aix-en-Provence’ (the western part of the Provence) with its beautiful relief is a very good region for rosé wines, they are mainly made of Grenache and Cinsault.
