The Oddbins Take

Human lives are full of eureka moments. These run the gamut from the earth-shattering "the world is not flat" or "he/she is the one" kind to the smaller but no less revelatory discoveries of chipotle Tabasco or the Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V commands on a keyboard.


This delicate looking wine lies somewhere in between, because it’s unequivocal proof that rosé can be incredibly serious stuff. It carries the poise, elegance and flawless complexion of Grace Kelly and then explodes with pink grapefruit, passion fruit, strawberry sorbet and lemon sherbet.

According to Steven Spurrier from Decanter Château Coussin Rosé is "the perfect Provence Rosé". From an old wine-producing estate, one of the most ancient in France, located at the foot of the Sainte-Victoire mountain. This Château takes its name from J. B. Coussin, the owner in the 18th century, but it has been owned by the Sumeire family since 1903.

Winemaking is traditional, harvested by hand and grown organically. The winemaker, Olivier Sumeire is a Master of Wine, literally and figuratively. The grapes are very gently pressed at low temperatures in a pneumatic press to retain the delicate colour.

Very pale pink, almost coppery, this wine has a beautiful nose of passion fruit and strawberries, that leads to a fresh and fruity palate with a long citrusy finish. A great summer wine, this is lovely with fish, white meat or crisp salads.

    Premium Pinks - Gift Set

    This gift is just too pink and delicious for words. If we have to look at it much more we'll need to pop that Jansz cork. This staggering Tasmanian rosé is one of the very best sparklers in the Oddbins range - and that's counting Champagne. Along with Chateau Coussin - a veritable Grace Kelly of a rose - we think that any pink lover will be utterly delighted.
