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.”
"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. 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.
Has a fine special 20th vintage stamp on the front and back labels.

“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
