SORRY - now sold out. Do try the Château Vermont - a lovely, dry Gold-medal winning Rosé.
NB There are 3 Magnums in a pack, equivalent to 6 bottles. Low stock but you can still order 4 cases of 3 (12 magnums - equivalent to 24 bottles). We love these because the wine stays fresh in the fridge for up to 5 days after opening, with the Stelvin screwcap replaced of course. And we think - after a fair amount of experience, it has to be said - that the rosé in the magnums tastes slightly fuller and moreish.
At the start of the year we thought we'd try some magnums and, for some reason, Bordeaux-shaped 150cl bottles were not available with a Stelvin screwcap fitting. And we quite liked the different shape. They are sold in nifty three-magnum cases - the equivalent of 6 bottles.
The back label: ‘For our 20th vintage, our dry rosé was made from equal parts of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The grapes were harvested quite early, in September, and the pale juice quickly run off the dark skins for a light, crisp wine. 12% vol.’
'Fashionably pale, but fruitier than many Provençal rosés, with a delicious taste of wild strawberries'. Fiona Beckett, The Guardian's wine critic, 6 June 2020.
"Rose petal aromas, racy, delicately balanced strawberry fruit. Fresh, dry, lively and moreish." Bordeaux Hot 50 Selection, 2020.
This is the house rosé at Rick Stein's restaurants and has been for many years, and this 2019 was selected for the list at Gordon Ramsay. Great for Spring and Summer, sure, but this is really good with food and pairs surprisingly well with all things spice. We drink it with Thai green curry. And on the terrace, touch wood.
These are cases of 3 magnums.
