Crémant de Bordeaux Rosé AC, Rioublanc

£15.99

After a gentle pressing, followed by skin maceration, this wine undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle. It is then laid down ‘sur lattes’ for a minimum of 12 months in an underground cellar at 14°C.
The underground cellar in this case is actually an old limestone quarry, under the hill of St Emilion.
The colour of this rosé is distinct with an abundance of fine, persistent bubbles. The nose is crisp with aromas of cassis, raspberry, cherry and yeasty brioche notes. The palate is both lively and well-rounded, therefore making it refreshing and enjoyable.

Serve chilled, traditionally as an apéritif or throughout a meal. It will perfectly accompany fish and seafood as well as cheese (sheep and goat’s in particular).

Château Rioublanc

The export manager of this impressive estate nabbed me at a wine show when I had no real interest in adding a new Bordeaux supplier. But I was impressed and I didn’t forget. So when ‘our’ Château Coursou was sold to a Chinese buyer unwilling to export to the UK, the lovely wines of owner and oenologue Philippe Carretero were a shoo-in to our range.
Vineyard size 45 hectares. Organic since 2012.
