PREMIUM

What makes a premium rosé plus 12 to seek out

The success of rosé stems from its fresh, simple and easy to drink nature, but while we may be used to premium red and white wine priced over £25/ $30, discussing rosés above this price elicits surprise, with £20 considered the glass ceiling for premium rosé. So, how can rosé ever achieve the complexity required to reach such elevated status?

Weight, complexity and ageability are all important qualities to look out for in premium wines. Many garner cult followings and excite hot passion and buying frenzies. But what else makes these types of wine so premium and sought after?

Are they rare and made in tiny quantities? Atypical? Fantasy projects? Or are they creative examples of what a wine might achieve outside of the constraints of commercial pressure? This debate is particularly true of premium rosé.
