Make Way for Even More Rosé

This summer gave me an opportunity to sample a number of high-quality Rosés, wines that are ideal companions to hot-weather food or for just enjoying by themselves. But don’t be in a hurry as their adaptability at the table often makes them year-round drinking options.

2017 La Bastide Blanche Bandol Rosé, 92 points

Displaying mineral-driven raspberry, blood orange, nectarine character, 2017 La Bastide Blanche Bandol Rosé shows outstanding clarity and cut on a finish that lingers with strong, floral-tinged persistence. This is a classic rendition from France’s Bandol region. (JR)

Château Lanzerac: 1961 – 1968

During my recent visit to the Cape, I planned a lunch with Merchant Roland Peens. To my surprise, he munificently poured four bottles of Lanzerac Cabernet from the 1960s that he had recently acquired from a private cellar.
