Pour: 2008 Mas des Bressades Cuvée Tradition

It’s not a cloyingly sweet blush wine or something pinkish posing as a wine cooler

We’ve got plenty of warm days left to enjoy a cool wine, and what better way to do that than with an undemanding rosé? Not a cloyingly sweet blush wine or something pinkish posing as a wine cooler—I mean a real wine, a dry, minerally rosé with a lively touch of acidity such as the French so dearly love. Consider the 2008 Mas des Bressades Cuvée Tradition ($10), a shimmering pink blend of grenache, syrah, and cinsault from the Costières de Nîmes in the south of France. The secret to enjoying good rosé? Chill, uncork, pour, and sip with a sigh.
