Rosé is, essentially, the basic bitch of wine. If it were a human lady, it’d show up to your book group dressed in Uggs and Lululemon and talking Goop-approved cleanses. The 2016 Commanderie de la Bargemone Rosé (approximately $20 at local wine shops) is the rare blush wine one can confidently take beyond the book club. Hailing from the Coteaux d’Aix en Provence, this lovely rosé exhibits a subtle fruitiness and a dry, mineral finish that never overpowers. The Commanderie vineyard was founded by Templar knights in the 13th century.
