Rosé: Three to chill now

Rosé is great with many of the foods of summer.

Rosés don’t follow many rules, said Dave McIntyre in The Washington Post. You can’t tell much by their color, and “good rosé can be made anywhere,” as the three below prove. That’s why the most important rule about rosé is this: “Always have at least one bottle chilling in the refrigerator.” Dry, light, and refreshing, it’s great with many of the foods of summer.

2012 Domaine du Dragon, Grande Cuvée Côtes de Provence, France ($15). This “subtle and complex” traditional rosé commands attention.

2012 Bouchaine, Rockin’ H Vineyard, Rosé of Syrah Sonoma, Calif. ($23). “Vibrant” and “hands-down delicious,” Rockin’ H is one of the rare rosés made from the grapes of a single vineyard.

2012 Mittelbach Zweigelt Rosé Austria ($14). Notes of melon and citrus brighten this zweigelt rosé, which is “among my favorites every year.”
