Grilled chicken tends to be a tough match for wine. It seems like chefs often overload the chicken with the flavors of sauces and the grill, but when done well, you can really develop layers of nuance with grilled chicken dishes.

But since we're (optimistically) talking about summertime grilling, why not go for a rich rosé, even one with a hint of sweetness that can pair up with grilled and lightly spicy flavors.
