Rosé Wines (International) are in the Pink!



My few comments on Rosé Wines can only be viewed from a lack of experience, but do not include the oft derogatory feminine connotation (no "blushing" allowed), though Rosé Wines are generally lighter, crisper, more refreshing, and subtler than the typically big bold Red varietals from which Rosé wine is made.
New Hampshire wine lovers that haven't ventured into "The Pink" will have a good number of these wines to choose from, should they want to explore this overlooked wine-expression, especially Rosé Wines from France, of which there seems to be an influx in late spring to early summer.
Now, as I have advocated in the past, when venturing into unknown territory you might want a "map/guide" of sorts; I have taken my own advice, and the last few Rosé Wines I've tasted were recommended wines, and all were quite good and worth the adventure.
Sandra Crittenden is the latest advocate/guide to give direction through the wine-brand maze.
