From: Cotes du Rhone, France
Serve with: Salmon, ham, fried chicken
The color may be pink but don't be fooled: This is a wine with some muscle. Produced by one of the greatest winemakers on Earth, this is about as good as rose gets. Its intense, penetrating flavors include hints of cherry, strawberry and rosehips. It's grip on the palate is impressive. If you ever serve rose with red meat, this should be the one.
