Bordeaux can make serious rosé | The Drinks Business

Bordeaux can make serious rosé | The Drinks Business | Planet Bordeaux - The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux | Scoop.it

Speaking to the drinks business during primeurs week in Bordeaux, Mau said: “I think rosé can be a serious wine and Bordeaux can make serious rosé.

“I’m very pleased with my first vintage. We need to change people’s perceptions and prove that Bordeaux has the capability to produce elegant rosés.”

Renowned for its mineral whites, Château Brown in Pessac-Léognan released its inaugural 2012 rosé onto the international market this month.

Regis Chaigne's curator insight, April 17, 2013 11:22 AM

Bordeaux did not wait for Château Brown to make serious rosés ;-)

Do you know the "Bordeaux Clairet AOC" ?

Not to be confused with British word "Claret" meaning "full bodied red Bordeaux", the Bordeaux clairet is a "rosé on steroids" according Nick Stephens http://goo.gl/BF2zx

To be discovered urgently !

Marc Soucy Writes about Wine here at www.MarcWine.com: Focus on Bordeaux: Chateau Bonnet Bordeaux Rosé

Marc Soucy Writes about Wine here at www.MarcWine.com: Focus on Bordeaux: Chateau Bonnet Bordeaux Rosé | Planet Bordeaux - The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux | Scoop.it

Andre Lurton brings us this different spin on Rosé. Bordeaux Rosé is different from many other typical Rosés in that the focused flavors of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon can produce a different flavor profile from the Grenache and Cinsault based Rosés that dominate much of southern France. The result can be a darker berry fruit flavor profile, and a bit more tannin. The grapes for this wine are partially hand picked, partially hand triaged before machine harvesting, and cool fermented in stainless steel to protect the fresh flavors.

Planet Bordeaux's insight:

This article from Marc Soucy is an excellent way to learn about Château Bonnet and from the wine! Also with a good food and wine pairing suggestion.

schiller-wine: Tasting Château du Cros and other Petites Bordeaux Wines with Winemaker Julien Noel at Calvert and Woodley in Washington DC, USA

schiller-wine: Tasting Château du Cros and other Petites Bordeaux Wines with Winemaker Julien Noel at Calvert and Woodley in Washington DC, USA | Planet Bordeaux - The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux | Scoop.it

Julien Noel is the winemaker at Château du Cros, Loupiac, France. Ever heard of Château du Cros? Probably not. Château du Cros is not one of the 300 or so winemakers in Bordeaux that produce a premium Bordeaux which sells en primeur for several hundreds of Euros per bottle. No, Château du Cros is one of the other 18.000 producers or so that are not in the limelight and that make so called Petites Bordeaux wines. As Christian Schiller highlights in this article, many of these petites Bordeaux producers offer very good value for the price.
