2017 'Le Bourbon' Rosé
A mature, thoroughly modern take on press rosé, based upon the great work undertaken by Grand Cru Bordeaux Rosés developing the ‘serious’ side of the rosé category.
'Le Bourbon' Rosé elegantly combines a premium terroir, careful grape selection, dedicated winemaking attention and time maturing on lees to produce a gastronomic rosé well matched with food or by the pool.
A dry rosé with an intense aromatic palate dominated by red cherry and strawberries and cinnamon spice and fresh, refreshing citrus aromas and grapefruit zest. The Bouquet is rose petal, pomegranate with a hint of dark cherry and toffee apple.
'Le Bourbon' is a perfect combination with Salad Nicoise, green pesto-based pasta, paella or grilled chicken, fish or lamb with herbs. Similarly, it is very enjoyable with rustic pâtés and terrines, charcuterie boards and sheep’s cheeses.
‘Le Bourbon’ is named after the Commandant Beaurepaire rose which is of the Bourbon rose family. The rose takes its name from Colonel Nicolas-Joseph Beaurepaire. Nicolas was one of the first to be buried in the Pantheon in Paris as a hero of France for committing suicide rather than surrendering Verdun to the Prussians in 1792.
