Besides having one of the best names in the wine business, Cyriaque Rozier has one of the best jobs. He runs the historic estate of La Roque with carte blanche. The domaine is his oyster, if you will. While he long ago certified the estate as biodynamic, brought in the horses for working the vines, and banished all additives from the cellars, he now gets to focus and experiment on the details. This rosé, for instance—so pale you need to hold it up to a light and squint to see that slight flicker of rosé hue—blurs the line between rosé and blanc. It seems like a peek at a fifth dimension, a middle ground between light and shadow (cue Twilight Zone music). The look and the aromas say blanc, and yet the suave, velvet pillow feel says rosé. I say, “Yes, please!” —Chris Santini K Lynch
