Just In Time For Summer: Our New Rosé Issue

Summer is officially here, and what better way to celebrate the sunny weather than with a crisp, refreshing quaffer, perhaps a glass of Provence Rosé or Champagne? Great minds think alike—we've compiled a special Interim Mid-June 2018 Issue of The Wine Advocate that focuses exclusively on Rosé and Champagne!.

Get into summer vacation mode while perusing Joe Czerwinski's recommended list of 97 Provence Rosés Worth Drinking as well as the latest releases of 2017 Rhône Rosés. And of course, we made sure to add a cherry of top of it all with Stephan Reinhardt's small but spectacular—and quite timely—quartet of reviews in Champagne: Louis Roederer 2008 & 2009 Releases

That should definitely provide an enjoyable distraction for the next week or two, until the arrival of our End of June 2018 Issue, which will be published right here at 12 p.m. EDT on Friday, June 29.
