Go on. What’s the best rosé wine you’ve ever had? For Lee Isaacs, rosé is ‘a crime’ and, if you like it, ‘you’re a bad person’ (or, at best, indecisive). Global rosé expert Elizabeth Gabay MW thinks we’re too snobbish about the sweet stuff and has had delicious rosés back as old as 1959. Majestic’s Jack Merrylees thinks the best way to get a party started is with rosé…in magnum.
In this episode, we get tickled pink by all this and more, discussing some of our favourite rosés (we’re big, big fans), and the likes of Hugh Johnson, Randall Grahm and Kylie Minogue also crop up in proceedings. Forget the best rosé…this may just be the best PODCAST ever. It’s certainly the pinkest.
‘Rosé wine is a crime, a travesty… If you like drinking rosé, you’re a bad person. Or someone who can’t make a decision.’ Lee Isaacs
‘Wine is an artistic product. I want consistency of quality but what we really want is something quirky and challenging.’ Elizabeth Gabay MW
‘Rosé has been one of the big success stories of lockdown. And it’s not just seasonal – people see it as a treat.’ Jack Merrylees, Majestic Wine
