Tasting Notes

Heritage

Le Bourbon takes its name from the Commandant Beaurepaire (Bourbon) Rose, which has light pink, fragrant flowers with flecks of purple and scarlet.

The Wine

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, retaining good acid levels and emphasising flavour. Fermented in stainless steel, with 10% fermented in French oak to give a subtle oak flavour. Pale salmon pink in colour.

Alcohol: 13%

Tasting Notes

Aromas of rose petals, strawberry and a fresh hint of vanilla oak complexity. A dry well-rounded palate, with fresh clean crisp acidity; cherry and strawberry fruit follows through from the aroma.

Cellaring

Will improve in the bottle for at least 4 years from bottling.

Vin et Gastronomie

This wine will work with a robust selection of seafood and vegetables, like smoked salmon or grilled prawns and roast red peppers, yet matched with a salad niçoise.

Other possible matches include Coq au Vin and pork rillettes. A slow-cooked ratatouille with plenty of olive oil will similarly work well on your palate. Rosé is also perfect with fresh berries.
