Clarendelle Bordeaux Rosé
Thanks to very short maceration in a controlled atmosphere and direct pressing, the wine has a beautiful pale pink colour as well as a rich, smooth flavour. The powerful bouquet features floral aromas such as rose, as well as fruity overtones of blood orange, apricot, and grapefruit. The aromatic complexity on the nose carries over onto the palate, which includes lovely flavours of ripe fruit like redcurrant. The wine is suave and concentrated, while remaining tremendously fresh.
A truly elegant vintage for Clarendelle Rosé!
Our oenologists are pleased and satisfied: 2016 gives every indication of being a remarkable vintage in Bordeaux, both in terms of quality and quantity. The wines are deeply-coloured, fruity, and concentrated. This is wonderful news because year did not start out very propitiously, with poor spring weather. However, this was followed by a very dry summer. The limited rainfall in early September and Indian summer during the harvest enabled the grapes to ripen magnificently, paving the way for a beautiful vintage. Our selected rosé wines come from dedicated plots, picked in September or October depending on the maturity of the different grape varieties. The grapes were in tip-top condition.
