This is one of the best types of rosé you'll come across: tart and sweet but light and flavorful. It's made from a blend of two of the most popular grapes in the Provence region, grenache, and cinsault. It works well with grilled meats and vegetables, as well as fruit-based desserts, thanks to its hints of berries like strawberries and currants.
