Note there are 3 x 150cl Magnums in a nifty pack, equivalent to a case of 6 x 75cl bottles. SO IF YOU ORDER THE 'CASE OF 6' IT WILL BE 3 MAGNUMS.
We love these, and the wine stays fresh in the fridge for up to 5 days after opening, with the Stelvin screwcap replaced of course.
We thought we'd try some magnums last year and, for some reason, Bordeaux-shaped 150cl bottles were not available with a Stelvin screwcap fitting. And we quite liked the different shape.
The back label: ‘This dry rosé was made from equal parts of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The grapes were harvested earlier in September than for making red, and the pale juice quickly run off the dark skins for a light, crisp wine.’ 12% vol.
These volume discounts will be applied automatically for unmixed cases of 6.
'Fashionably pale, but fruitier than many Provençal rosés, with a delicious taste of wild strawberries'. Fiona Beckett, The Guardian's wine critic, June 2020, on the 2019 vintage.
"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 it 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.

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
