Two Côtes du Rhône Rosés

Boutinot ‘Les Cerisiers’ Côtes du Rhône Rosé 2015, France (£8.50 Hercules Wine Warehouse, Highbury Vintners)
Juicy yet precise style, with rounded red berry, ripe red apple and rosehip flavours kept in check by crisp acidity. B+

Chapoutier ‘Belleruche’ Côtes du Rhône Rosé 2015, France (£12.50 Hanging Ditch, Wined Up Here)
A fleshier wine than the above, with a peach melba character and an earthy, stony note to add further interest, quite voluptuous but never OTT. B+
