The back label: "Our Bauduc series is a range of wines we make using our own grapes and the produce of neighbouring growers. This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon is great for summer drinking, and with food all year round." 12% vol.
A short story on this new release. Monsieur Rontein is an oenologue (qualified wine making consultant) who runs the wine laboratory that we use at the end of Rue Bauduc - we call him Mr Rontein because he's a bit like a schoolmaster. Anyway, he has his own vineyard nearby from which he made this rosé. It's good and fairly similar to ours.
He couldn't wait long enough for his restaurant customers to open up so he sold the wine to us at a knock down price - and we are doing the same. We bottled it using the Bauduc screwcap and Bauduc label (not our Château one as of course that wouldn't be right). Great value!

Château Bauduc Rosé (Bordeaux) 2019
I can’t say I spend any time drinking much (or indeed any) rosé, nevertheless this one won me over. It has a great colour, a peachy sunset-pink, and most importantly a nose of fresh rather than sweet or confected fruit, all crisp strawberry and leafy raspberry, with nuances of peach stone, pear and acacia. It has such delicious vigour on the palate, showing weight but also poise and energy, the substance cut by a fresh acidity and citric energy. It is so delicious and so fresh, with a long, tingling finish too. Bottled under Stelvin screwcap. From a 2021 Update. 92/100
“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
