Rosé wine: So many possibilities!

Because there are plenty of opportunities to open a bottle of rosé, we suggest three perfect occasions to enjoy a glass casually, the perfect sidekick for your next gourmet moments.

Pairings: Which foods to serve with rosé?

The possibilities for pairing rosé wines are very varied, so we've come up with a few suggestions using the taste tags, as well as three opportunities to delight your guests by putting rosé wines in the spotlight.

Fruity and Light taste tag

Rosés with the "Fruity and Light" taste tag

Although rosés are great on their own, their subtle flavours and delicate aromas are at their best when paired with food. Rosés with the “Fruity and Light” taste tag pair wonderfully with seafood canapés, white fish spreads, feta cheese bites, Margherita pizza or tomato-and-bocconcini appetizers.

Fruity and Sweet” taste tag

These wines pair nicely with salty-sweet Asian dishes, like ginger chicken or salmon topped with fruit salsa. They’re also delicious with prosciutto and melon appetizers, liver pâté with cherry jam, or dried cranberry terrine.

Fruity and Medium-bodied taste tag

A little more robust, these wines pair perfectly with meat, such as veal, chicken and sausage. You can also serve these rosés with salads (think Niçoise or California), tomato and Provençal herb dishes, or even dishes that have a touch of spiciness.

Apéro

Just like the return of migrating birds and potholes, serving rosé as an aperitif is a sure sign that spring is back!
Take time to relax before the meal and let the appetizers’ flavours win you over.
