One of the best rosés is Guigal's 2014 Cotes du Rhone Rose, which checks in as a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Cinsault and 10% Syrah. Sporting a lighter raspberry color (this cuvee normally has a slightly darker color), it gives up lots of sweet cherry, strawberry, honeysuckle and Provencal herb characteristics to go with a medium-bodied, rounded, beautifully supple and textured feel on the palate. This is a classic Cotes du Rhone that has both freshness and texture. Drink it over the coming 12-16 months. Jeb Dunnuck
