Château de Fontenille Bordeaux Rosé

The Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes used in the making of the Bordeaux Rosé are picked from the vines in the cool of the early morning hours to preserve their freshness. 

Gentle pressing and a brief maceration period yield the wine's delicate hue, while stainless steel fermentation at a cool temperature preserves freshness of fruit and bright acidity.   Following just a few months in tank, Bordeaux Rosé is ready for bottling, and of course drinking!

Tasting Notes

This rosé has a light and clear color, it is fresh and delightful with a fine nose where fruity aromas of raspberry and grapefruit are intermingled with delicate floral scents. Mineral and well-balanced, it finishes with pleasant citrus fruit notes. 

Food Pairing

This attractive and trendy rosé is going to be a must for your aperitifs. It’s superb with salads, couscous, stuffed tomatoes, sushi. Ideal for any relaxing moment.
