Bordeaux Rosés from M&S and Hedonism
Bordeaux is most famous for its high-end reds; in more-affordable territy, its rosés are fresh-yet-full and a good match for food.
These two rosés are quite different in character; the Fleur D'Amelie is expressive, the Clarendelle aristocratic and elegant,
La Fleur D'Amelie Rosé 2015 (£10, M&S) crisp, redcurrant fruit, grapefruit and white-peppery mintiness; lively, linear and mineral.
Clarendelle Bordeaux Rosé 2015 (£13.90, Hedonism) ripe, red berries, stone fruit and leesy mineral; long, substantial and clean. A very classy and adept wine.
Both make good picnic wines or garden sippers - match the Amelie with quiches or barbecue chicken; match the classy Clarendelle with cold cuts.
