Now to the worldâ€™s two great hot spots for dry RosÃ©. Starting in Spain with the semi-rich Campo Viejo. Itâ€™s been top of my list for at least two decades, and the 2014 vintage is as good as ever. A bit high in alcohol, so more suited to food than party sloshing.
The south of France is considered the home of RosÃ© and Ogierâ€™s wine carries the flag well. Dry, refreshing, semi-rich, and turning on the charm. Well almost. Damn good everyday RosÃ© for the price.
