Regular readers might have been wondering what happened to my perennial favourite Rosé – wonder no more. Mas Des Bressades has hit all the right notes again with the 2018 vintages. Rosé is the most difficult drinking experience to describe as it’s very much a ‘feel’ thing. Drinking Bressades gives me the feeling of being at a beautiful restaurant/café in the south of France. What is it in the wine that delivers that feeling? All I can offer is good proportions of freshness, flavor and a certain something! Try a few bottles and see if it works for you. May I suggest you put some thought into the setting/atmosphere, the glassware, and the food. The wine will shine with almost any food if you get the other parts right. As is the case with all wines.
