The house rosé at Rick Stein's restaurants, made in a pale, dry style. From three different red varieties and the pale juice is whipped off the skins straight away for a dry, refreshing wine. £12.50 a bottle. SOLD OUT, sorry.
A chance to try single bottles as 'samples': UK P&P for 1 bottle costs £4.75, 2-12 bottles £9.50. The transit packaging is quite basic so we recommend regular 6-packs, Gifts and Mixed Cases for presents and smarter Bauduc cases.
The back label: 'This Provençal style of dry rosé was made from 30% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes were harvested early, in September, and the pale juice quickly run off the dark skins for a light, crisp wine.' 12.5% vol.
See our nifty 'best to drink' graphic on the back label, a few pics from the vineyard below, or our 'Restaurant listings' which show you're in good company.
The same wine is available 'UK duty free' from our WineCollect.com site: collect from Calais or the Château.

“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
