AOC Bordeaux Pink

Low acidity, not aggressive.
This wine is elegant and enjoyable, fine and fruity, light and easy to drink.

Since 1854 our exploitation is in the family,
Owned by Patrick Carteyron since 1982.

Surface area of the vineyard :
40 hectares. Only 5 hectares for this wine.

Grape varieties of the Rosé : Cabernet Sauvignon 90%, Merlot 10%

Terroir : Clayey, silty, sandy soils.

Vinification :
- Harvesting when the grapes are at optimal aromatic ripeness (i.e. 4 to 5 days before the tannins are ripe).
- Total de-stemming.
- After 4 hours of maceration in vat, the juice is slightly coloured and is separated from the skins.
- It is cooled at 4°C and is kept stable at this cool temperature for 5 days.
- Then it is racked and settled and yeasted with selected strains.
- The fermentation is carried out at a constant temperature of 14°C.

Ageing :
- The wine made does not undergo a malo-lactic fermentation and therefore keeps all its freshness and fruitiness.
- The level of acidity is naturally low because of the good ripeness levels in the grapes.
- The Rosé is aged on its fine lees for 2 months to gain aromatic richness and roundness on the palate.
- After being maintained at cold temperature to achieve a better stability, the wine is bottled very quickly 2 months after the harvest. We therefore add very little sulphur dioxide to our rosé wines, and can ensure our consumers that they run no risk of getting a headache.

Production : 35 000 bottles

Serving : It is the perfect wine to share with friends and to enjoy when relaxing.
