What better to celebrate a beautiful May Mother’s Day than with a beautiful and delicious rosé? There are so many to choose from these days, not just from France, but from all over the United States and Italy and Argentina, too. Here are a couple I love. The first is a classic French rose from the birthplace of rosé, Provence, in the south of France. It’s Whispering Angel, the first rose to hit it big with American wine drinkers, and still leading the pack not just in the US but around the world. As popular as it is with consumers, it’s also a winner with critics, who consistently give it great scores. In fact, James Suckling gave it a 92 and said, “Pretty aromas of lavender, rosehip, strawberries, cherries and cloves. It’s medium-bodied with crisp acidity and a supple, creamy palate. Perfumed and elegant.” I couldn’t have said it better myself! Another suggestion is locally made Milea Estate Winery Rosé. Made mainly from Cabernet Franc, there is also some Bordeaux reds in the blend and a dollop of Muscat. It’s got a beautiful nose and is nice and dry, brimming with notes of orange blossom and rose petal, finishing with a crisp minerality. Rosé’s pair with all kinds of food, so they’re perfect for lunch or dinner. All you have to add with either of these wines is family, friends, and the guest of honor on Mother’s Day and every day, your mom.
