Two Summer Pinks

Two summer pinks from Joseph Mellot and Jean-Luc Colombo

Has rosé finally come in from the cold? No longer a tawdry, rather frivolous quaffer, it is these days a serious wine commanding serious prices.

Jean Luc Colombo Les Pins Couchés Rosé 2013 (£11.05, independents) delicate translucent pink, red berry fruit and a hint of spice, sweet watermelon and pure, refreshing acidity. Good.

Match with seafood and grilled Mediterranean foods.

Joseph Mellot Châteaumeillant Rosé 2014, Loire Valley, (£18.75, independents) translucent pomegranate red, delicate red berry fruit, creamy leesiness and lovely acidity. Poised and elegant with good underpinnings. Good.

Match with smoked salmon quiche.
