Sit back and revel in the refreshing taste of rosé. Not just for summer, the Harvey Nichols’ delicious edit of covetable pale pink wine can be enjoyed all year round.
Harvey Nichols Corbières Rosé 2020 £11.50
Summer in a glass whatever the season. Cherry blossom pink, vegan friendly, organically and sustainably farmed, and a splash of sunshine in any weather.
Produced via the Vin Gris method using the indigenous red varieties of Grenache and Cinsault, this Corbières Rosé is a wonderful salmon-pink colour, the nose is graced with subtle, engaging notes of dried flora, red fruit and mixed herbs, leading to understated flavours of raspberry ripple, strawberry shortcake and an assortment of regional spices. Delicious on its own, this versatile rosé is also the perfect accompaniment to lightly flavoured shellfish, poultry, salads, pasta dishes and summer days.
Caves D’Esclans Whispering Angel Rosé 2020 £22.50
Whispering Angel is without a doubt the most iconic Provence rosé on the planet and its producer Château d’Esclans sets the benchmark for the entire category. Bottled holiday sunshine, this luxurious vegan and immensely food friendly pink has the mass appeal that others can only dream of. Not only is it fast becoming the new Champagne for millennials, but it’s also being loaded in huge volumes on to superyachts all over the Côte d’Azur and beyond, not to mention countless listings on a who’s who roll call of the world’s hottest restaurants.
The history of the blue-shuttered and hydrangea-surrounded Château d’Esclans dates back to the 12th Century, but Sacha Lichine of the famous Bordeaux family revolutionised the estate in 2006 when he turned the focus on to premium rosé. Now its monumental Provence rosés are household names and quite simply must-haves.

Invivo X, SJP Sarah Jessica Parker Rosé 2019 £18
I couldn’t help but wonder if this is the Cosmopolitan of Provence rosé…
This stylish Rosé 2019 was created over an afternoon’s tasting between Invivo’s winemakers and the actor Sarah Jessica Parker. And it really impressed the highly respected New Zealand wine critic, Sam Kim, who awarded it 94 points and said: “This is instantly appealing on the nose showing grapefruit, crunchy apple and nectarine characters with a hint of sweet raspberry. The palate delivers terrific fruit intensity and vibrancy, combined with fine texture and bright acidity, finishing delightfully long and refreshing.”
Invivo X, SJP Rosé was crafted by a family-owned estate in Provence that is run almost entirely on solar power. Vins Chevron Villette use grapes from Saint Tropez (adding a dash of Riviera style), Puget-Ville and Les Arcs to the northwest (imparting texture and minerality), and finally from the rolling hills of Le Thoronet (bringing pure power). Seriously elegant and frivolously fun, this is Provence at its finest – bursting with bright summer berry sorbet, rose petals, zingy pink grapefruit and crisp red apple – all you need to do is add sunshine and friends.
Kylie Minogue Wines Côtes de Provence Rosé 2020 £22
Kylie Minogue Côtes de Provence Rosé 2020, I just can’t get you out of my head.
Part of the Collection Range, her flagship single-estate wines, Kylie Minogue’s Côtes de Provence Rosé is crafted at Château Sainte-Roseline on the Côte d’Azur, not far from St. Tropez. It’s not hard to see why Kylie fell in love with this picturesque estate, surrounded by lavender fields, sunflowers, gnarly olive trees and rolling vineyards, especially when you taste their wines. This vegan-friendly and highly fashionable rosé sings of pink grapefruit, watermelon sorbet, citrus blossom and strawberry meringue, before glamorously dancing across the palate with crisp and zesty steps. Serve with summer lunches, Mediterranean flavours, good times, chic outfits, and pop tunes at full blast.
Harvey Nichols Cotswolds Pinot Rosé 2019 £16.50
From the family-run Woodchester Valley Vineyard, nestled in the green and pleasant hills of the South Cotswolds, this delicate pink Pinot is as blushing as an English rose. With its hints of strawberry and raspberry, it’s a winner with white meat or seafood and makes the perfect summer aperitif, with or without the sunshine.
Harvey Nichols Cotswolds Pinot Rosé feels like Provence meets the British countryside in summertime with a touch more pink from the sunshine. Crafted using pure Pinot Noir Précoce, an early ripening form of Pinot Noir, it’s bursting with pink grapefruit zest, lemon, strawberries and cream, tangy raspberry sorbet, rhubarb and beachy sea spray. If you can’t make it to Provence this summer, consider the Cotswolds instead!
Chateau Léoube Rosé de Léoube 2018 £26.50
The Léoube estate was bought by the founders of Daylesford Organic in 1997. Seduced by this chateau in Provence and the Léoube’s history and beauty, they set out to make wines with character that were true to their terroir, while remaining respectful of nature. The estate stretches over 560 hectares, of which 65 are dedicated to vineyard, in the protected site of Cape Benat. The unique location, climate and soil composition makes it one of the most special and lushest natural environments on the Côte d’Azur.
Unmistakable scents of mint, wild strawberries and red cherries frame this assured and understated Rosé. The fresh yet harmonious palate is lifted by a saline finish that makes it a complete and highly accomplished wine. Rosé de Léoube is a perfect summer wine that can be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif or as the perfect accompaniment to cold cuts, goat cheese or sushi.
Chase Selladore En Provence Rosé 2020 £19.50
A new vintage brings a new name for the wine formerly known as Williams Chase. We’re proud to introduce Selladore En Provence Rosé 2020.
William Chase has been the proud owner of Domaine St Jean de Villecroze – located a short drive from Saint Tropez and the iconic Côte d’Azur – since 2015. Meaning no disrespect to his family name, we can’t help but think that ‘Selladore’ is a better fit for a wine that feels so very French Riviera; convertibles, ultramarine seas, rolling lavender fields, bustling street markets and Breton stripes. Having said that, this cheeky little pink does owe its creation to the humble Herefordshire spud. William Chase began his career as a potato farmer. When a batch of his finest were rejected by a supermarket for not being pretty enough, he sold them to Kettle Chips, who loved them. From this idea Tyrrells was born, then those same potatoes became Chase Vodka. Now William is branching out into biodynamic wine in the South of France, and the results are spectacular.
Badenhorst The Curator Rosé 2020 Box of Cans 4 x 250ml £17
Wanting fine wine quality from a genius winemaker, but in a smaller and more eco-friendly format? Now you CAN!
The Curator is a celebration of the mavericks who tend diverse and widespread vineyards, bringing them all together in perfect peace and harmony to create immensely drinkable wines. The Rosé 2020 is a silky-smooth wine crafted from Swartland Cinsault by the legendary Adi Badenhorst. A crisp combo of wild strawberry, plum sorbet, tangy redcurrants, mint leaf and sea spray will have you wanting to stock up for summer.
We love cans. There’s no corkscrew needed, no pressure to finish a whole bottle, no chance of finding it corked, and being lighter and easier to recycle, it’s much better for the environment. They’re also perfect for a weekday treat, a picnic in the park, or adding a splash to dinner while leaving enough for a glass for yourself
