AOP Bordeaux rosé

Château Le Clos du Notaire 2016

€250 Bottle of 10cl

This wine belongs to the Gironde region's only appellation for Rosé wine: Bordeaux Rosé AOC. Made from Cabernet Franc, this is a bright and pretty rosé wine with a light, peachy-pink color and aromas of stone fruits and citrus. The palate is fresh, fruity and immediately rich in flavor, with a nice liveliness right through to the finish. This is the perfect D-Vine wine to enjoy when friends are over. An appetizer of green olive tapenade, a BBQ or some flavorful goat's cheese will all work well as pairings.

Winemaker

Amélie Osmond et Victor Mischler

In the past, the Château was owned by a lawyer, followed by Henri Coutin, a local notaire or notary from Jonzac, who is responsible for the name Clos du Notaire. In 2015, several decades on, Amélie Osmond and Victor Mischler fell in love with the estate and decided to place their bets on the venture. The tremendous winegrowing conditions, the modern winery equipment, the location and the microclimate created by the closeness of the Gironde estuary convinced them to take the plunge. Their one goal is to allow this magnificent terroir to express itself while perpetuating the tradition of quality winegrowing and winemaking. Their philosophy is based on respect for the environment, sustainable development and, above all, dedication.
