The occasions may be rare, but sometimes Rosé needs a half a year to simmer and to show its true colour. What once...

This pale, dry, delicate, aromatically restrained rosé from Bertrand is too dry and bitter at first, without much fruit at all, but with time the strawberry, raspberry, and floral (rosy, to be precise) notes start to emerge (the fruit getting softer and richer by the second day), complemented by herbs and white pepper, with bitter grapefruit pith completing the package on the finish. It's not quite as nice as the rose-bottomed bottle it comes in, but it nicely complements light dishes and works well as a sipper with patience to allow the subtleties to express themselves.
