Even if you don’t take rose wines seriously, Valentine’s Day is surely the one day to “think pink” and flirt with the prettiest palette on the wine list.

The palest blush, or salmon pink with copper highlights, will always have the edge when a thirst for romance is on the cards. Although, that said, red is arguably the colour of romance too.

To help you embrace these sexy shades and bring something suitably fruity to the table this February 14, we’ve hand-picked some bottles ideal for Valentine’s Day...

1. Beaujolais Rose 2018, France (£5.99, Aldi)

Flowing with girly charm, blooms and an angel with a trumpet adorn the label, and for rose drinkers looking for something simple but vibrant, this is a giveaway gamay from the famous Beaujolais region.

Brentwood Live:

Fresh and lively, with delicate strawberry and raspberry aromas peeping through, there’s enough zesty fruit backed by fresh acidity to sink with smoked salmon and horseradish nibbles.

2. 8. Moet & Chandon Rose Imperial Living Ties Limited Edition, France (£59.99, Selfridges - available from early-Feb; or £59 in a set with two metallic pink champagne glasses, Clos19.com)

Brentwood Live:

Destined to win someone’s heart, Moet & Chandon’s Rose Imperial has been robed in a pink sleeve - while black ribbon elegantly twirls to spell the words Moet, Rose, or to contour the shape of a heart, creating three different versions of the design.

3. Paul Mas Jardin de Roses Rose 2018, AOP Languedoc, France (£14.99, SohoWine.co.uk)

A stunning looking wine, chances are - like us - you’ve already fallen in love with this pale beauty at first glance.

Caped in studded glass with a single rose on the label, this latest addition to the Paul Mas library of wines is a corker.

4. Graham Beck The Rhona Rose NV, South Africa (£15, Marks & Spencer)

Brentwood Live:

Another little gem that looks the part and merits a silver medal from the International Wine Challenge (IWC) 2019, this champagne blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier hits all the right notes with its pretty salmon hue, beautifully fresh red fruits with hints of strawberry and red cherry. Delightful quaffing character.
