Postcard from St Tropez


Summer holidays in the sunshine are enhanced significantly by volumes of chilled rosé. Particularly when reclining on an impeccable blue-striped sun bed at Cap 21 on the Pampelonne beach, mirrored shades allowing the eyes to enjoy the considerable talent on offer with no danger of offence.

This year as I write I am enjoying the truly exquisite palest of pinks Domaine de Jale Cuvée Les Fenouils 2008. It is organic so never results in hangovers and is so moreish. Love as I do the iconic Ott this, at a fraction of the price, is more than a match.

Raise a glass, close your eyes and you too can be here with me on Pampelonne beach. Santé.
