Yeah, there’s a lot of crap rosé, just as there is with anything that’s easy to market. It’s the social media platforms and conspicuous consumption of “rosé lifestyle” by “Basic Bitches” that the writer seems to hate. It’s easy to parody - just see TheFatJewish’s rosé line - but there’s some nice rosé out there, beyond this whole brouhaha.
I stick with:
Chene Bleu for a reliable go-to
Chateau Simone for something quite vibrant
Billecart-Salmon for an elegant apertif
Is the writer going to throw shade at ma-1 jackets, white sneakers, ripped-knee jeans, perfectos, and brim hats? Or avocado toast, rose-gold glasses, etc.? Not sure this article is really necessary. Seems quite self-indulgent by Eater, which itself can be fairly exhausting.
