OUR BEST BBQ WINE
If you’re celebrating the bank holiday with a barbecue or party, stock up your cellar with our pick of summer’s freshest rosé wines
The phrase ‘‘bring a bottle’’ can strike fear into a guest’s heart. Do you go all out and take that dusty champagne you’ve been hoarding or grab something that’s great with fish and falls within the acceptable £6–£9 price bracket from the supermarket? You want to look like you’re trying, but not that hard. The key to giving – whether it’s a present for the host or something to crack open on the day – is to pick something you’d be happy to get yourself, like this elegant Coteaux Varois. Made in Var, France’s original rosé region, this seductive curved bottle isn’t just a looker – its ultra-dry finish and fresh strawberry palate ensure it has flavour, too. And, incidentally, it does go really well with fish.
