Rick Stein Rosé 2016
Our pale, dry Rosé is the house pink at Rick Stein’s. Fresh and lovely. £11 per bottle.
Back label: ’This Provençal style of dry rosé was made from 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot. The grapes were harvested in September, a bit earlier than for red, and the pale juice quickly run off the dark skins for a lighter wine.’ 12% alc.
Stolen from Rick's wine list: “We made this lighter style of rosé using Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes - with minimal skin contact - it is crisp, dry and fruity. A sort of St.Tropez meets Bordeaux” says Gavin Quinney.’
Pale, a very pretty pink, fruity and dry, this is the house rosé for Rick Stein's growing restaurant empire. Rick, who visited the vineyard recently while filming for his Long Weekends series on BBC2, takes a large chunk of our limited production. As well as a being a lovely summer wine, we drink this all year round with any food that's quite spicy - whether it be a Thai green curry or a pizza with chorizo.
The Cabernet Franc gives the wine its refreshing acidity and a satisfying, mineral edge, while the Merlot plumps it out with a little extra fruitiness. The alcohol is a respectable 12% and not too heavy.

“The Bauduc Rosé is something of a revelation… It is a delightful wine. Aromatically I find delicate red fruits, with notes of peach and tangerine. It shows a lovely structure in the mouth, possessing the feel of a white wine, light and fresh, and imbued with vibrant acidity. This is really good…”Chris Kissack, thewinedoctor.com
“Very pale pink. Fresh, red fruit aromas - raspberry and redcurrant nuance. Clean and dry on the palate but with an underlying ripeness of fruit. The freshness is what appeals. Delicious.”James Lawther MW, Contributing Editor for Decanter magazine
“The other day I had Chateau Bauduc’s lovely Bordeaux Rosé, which goes against the region’s general trend of harvesting late by picking grapes (merlot and cabernet) early to keep the style fresh, dry and modest in alcohol (12% abv). You can buy the wine, which stocked at Rick Stein’s restaurants and Gordon Ramsay’s, direct from the chateau.”Fiona Beckett, The Guardian
