Rosé des Plages Premium Pays d’Oc

Rosé des Plages immediately makes me think of summer! Of course, as plage means ‘beach’ this is no surprise.

Rosé des plages

Rosé des Plages is an onion skin hued pink rosé made by the local co-operative that represents growers from Saint- Saturnin in the Languedoc. Saint-Saturnin-de-Lucian is a small commune to the north of Montpellier with the wineries along the road about 50 kms inland from the coast. Obviously, as it is a wine that needs to compete with the very fashionable Provencal rosés, it comes in a stylishly curved bottle which has become so popular for wines of the south of France.

In the glass it is a convivial mouthful of berries, stonefruit and cream. It does lend itself to fish and chips by the beach. Although, a seafood platter with some fish croquets or goujons would be a good option also.
