La Nuit en Rosé
by Barnaby Hughes
Rosé is one of the world’s most underrated wines. It can be surprisingly affordable, incredibly versatile, and utterly refreshing, but the good stuff often gets lost among the oceans of White Zinfandel and other pink plonk being produced both here and abroad. A new rosé festival launching this month in New York aims to right this wrong.
Provence in the City
by Michelle Kwan
Crisp, chilled rosé is commonly considered to be a warm weather drink, but that didn’t stop Provençal rosés from coming to New York City early this year. To be precise, they arrived ten days before spring at Lafayette restaurant in NoHo on an overcast Monday in March. This year’s “Provence in the City” tasting and seminar featured more than 60 different wines. Six were paired with four Provençal-influenced courses from Lafayette.
