5 Rosé Wines to Start Drinking This Summer

Light and crisp, start you summer off right with these rosé choices.
BY JULIE H. CASE

With summer heating up and June’s Westchester Magazine’s Wine & Food Festival right around the corner, Justin Kemp, at Varmax Liquor Pantry, talked to us about which rosés to watch for this summer — before, after, and during the festival.

Whispering Angel, 2016, Chateau d’Esclans, Cotes de Provence

Fair enough, Whispering Angel is a big seller. And yet, the wine has merits, says Kemp. It’s classic, crisp, and this year rounded with a nice, firm texture. There are plenty of strawberry and raspberry tones, as is typical of Provence, and there’s a nice floral note and a hint of minerality. $19.99
